Festival week 2018 will run from 15th to 22nd September.

We have lots of new events for you to look forward to.

New for Festival week is the microbit coding class for families hosted by Arm. Thirsty Cambridge will be setting up a beer garden at St Andrew’s to bring you delicious craft beers, quality wines and artisan gin.  We’ve teamed up with the Cambridge Film Festival to bring you a FREE pop up cinema. The 27th Cambridge Scouts will be in charge of the Duck Race this year – with a new format and games for you to enjoy.  And we will be making a community portrait with artist Tim Mann – we want to include the whole community (all 10,000 of you!) so look out for the events where you can take part and be committed to Cherry Hinton history! Visit the programme page for details.

Festival Day will take place on the Recreation Ground again and this year has a theme of ‘Time Travellers’. Our centre piece is a 100 seat planetarium where we will take you on a journey through space and time. We will also have some dinosaurs and aliens for you to meet!  We are collaborating with the Cambridge Science Festival to bring you amazing exhibits for the children’s activities marquee. As with previous years admission to Festival Day is FREE and all the activities are FREE for you to enjoy. Thank you to our very generous sponsors for supporting us to put on this (awesome) free community festival. Visit the Festival Day page for details.
