Welcome to the Cherry Hinton Festival 2014! This year we have a fantastic week of events to amaze and delight!

New to the programme of events for the week is the Children’s Produce Show. There’s also the bell-ringing workshop with the St Andrew’s Bell-ringers, and an evening with critically acclaimed author Nicola Upson. Plus we have all your favourite events including the Bat Walk, Craft Party and Quiz night.

The week of events closes with the Festival Day, back on the Recreation Ground! We have some fantastic attractions including:

Beautiful Chinese Lion Dancers opening the Festival at 12noon. Thank you to the Cambridge Chinese Community Centre for this performance.

The ‘World of Wonder’ – an extraordinary, interactive and artistic set of installations that make a captivating alternative to the average village fete.
