Delivered by Freemans Exhibit & Website Launched

17 September 2018

A new exhibition is touring across Peterborough this autumn all about Freemans Distribution Centre which ran in the city from 1969-2009.

Eastern Angles have been working on the Delivered by Freemans project since 2017. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Vivacity, Eastern Angles have interviewed ex-employees of the Centre, collected clothes and researched through the city archives to create a fascinating new exhibit about the pivotal part of Peterborough's industry. 

The project also saw the company produce a community musical play All Wrapped Up in Westwood in 2017. Take a look at the trailer here:
