Metal (Peterborough)St Peters Rd, Peterborough PE1 1YX, UK
Metal was founded in London in 2002 by Jude Kelly CBE, working with current Artistic Director, Colette Bailey since inception.
We have been active in Liverpool since 2004, in Southend-on-Sea since 2007 and in Peterborough since 2012.
In each place, we work from buildings of historic significance that we have transformed from empty or derelict spaces into vibrant cultural community hubs.
From these bases, we work to provide the catalyst that can transform the potential of people and places through great art and inspiring ideas.
Metal’s Peterborough home is Chauffeurs Cottage, the original gatehouse property at the entrance to the impressive Peterborough Cathedral and what were, once, it’s grounds. The ancient wall and castle-like gateway remain, forming a sizeable courtyard space outside our building for outdoor music and art events.
