It already looks to be an exciting, fun filled day with many activities returning from last year: the Nuclear Bunker will be open; tours of Castle Mound & Roman Cambridge with archaeologist Quinton Carroll; walks up Castle Hill with CAMRA for their historic pub trail; the Museum of Cambridge is open for tours and their Vintage Cafe; storytelling from Marion Leeper and ‘How to Read a Church’ with Rev. Janet Bunker in St. Giles’.
The family activities with Irregular Circle will be taking place on Northampton Street Green before the Kettle’s Yard Cottages, along with family activities from Churches Conservation Trust and the Museum of Cambridge, inspired by the themes of history and memory in Inventory: Invisible Companion a display by Whitney McVeigh in St. Peter’s Church. The artist will be discussing her work with Kettle’s Yard Director, Andrew Nairne on the day.
New for this year Murray Edwards College offer a tour of The New Hall Art Collection with their Administrator, Sarah Greaves and a tour of the gardens with the Head Gardener, Jo Cobb. Throughout the day watch out for Pop-Up Dance pieces performed by North Cambridge Academy celebrating the exhibition New Rhythms: Henri Gaudier Brzeska at Kettle’s Yard!
