Vivacity gave notice to the council on 18 June 2020 that it is unable to deliver the current contract due to lockdown and COVID-19 restrictions - and this began a 90 day period to manage the transition. Peterborough City Council has begun a review of all services to consider how they might be delivered in the future – either by the council alone, or in partnership with others.
Many of Peterborough’s most popular cultural and sporting facilities are now part of something new. Vivacity.
Vivacity is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, made up of a 300 strong team of staff, as well as volunteers. Our goals are clear: to manage and improve the facilities you use, to encourage you to try new things, and to ensure that you enjoy the experience at each and every one of the venues, events and activities we run.
We will also be actively working to support the many related clubs and societies in and around the city. And looking ahead, we’ll be applying for funding to help develop the quality and breadth of services we provide.
