Last year we celebrated 30 years of the Festival (1985-2015). We had a great week of events that finished with Festival Day on the Recreation Ground. The weather for Festival Day was perfect and we had a record-breaking 8000 visitors! Thanks again to all the sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers and visitors who helped to make this a 30th anniversary celebration to remember!
2016 is going to be another fantastic festival. New for the programme of events in the week is the comedy night, pensioners harvest lunch and an open evening with the community choir. Festival favourites will be returning including the quiz night, duck race, Ol’ Boys Club, history talk and much more! See the full listings on our programme page.
Once again Festival week will finish with Festival Day on the Recreation Ground with a vast array of entertainments including owls, lego, giant bubbles, Gamers Bus, climbing wall, messy play, circus skills, stalls, music, food, dancing and bagpipes to name but a few!
And we have a special treat for you in the Children’s Marquee this year as Black Shuck Cambridge Ghost Tours tells the tale of Plague and Pox in Cherry Hinton! Find out more on our dedicated Festival Day page.
Save the date – 10th-17th September – and we’ll look forward to seeing you all for Festival fun!
