of Castle Hill, with free events for all ages
Saturday 18 October 12-5pm
After last year's success, Castle Hill Open Day returns for it's third year. It's a day filled with family friendly activities, talks, tours, games and music. This year we are moving the date to coincide with Curating Cambridge. Even more historic and cultural venues in the Castle Hill area will be opening their doors for free, joining forces to showcase the oldest area of Cambridge and its wealth of cultural offerings.
Refreshments will be available at St Giles', the Museum of Cambridge vintage style tearoom and we're delighted that joining us this year is popular local purveyor of quality fast food 'Steak & Honour'.
Some free disabled parking is available but needs to be booked in advance - please call 01223 748100 or email email@example.com to book.
Events will run throughout the day both timed and drop in - tours will be bookable on the day.
