This year we celebrated 30 years of the Festival (1985-2015). The Cherry Hinton Festival has a long history as a time of celebration for the harvest safely gathered in and of the years work successfully completed. The Cherry Hinton Festival continued to be held until 1937 or 1939 then along came the war and post-war Cherry Hinton never had the heart to recapture it. In 1985 a group was formed – the Cherry Hinton Festival Society – and once again the community came together and has been doing so for the last 29 years!
This year we had a great week of events running from 12th-19th September finishing 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!
