Last year, we announced a brand new, exciting festival for Cambridge, which will replace the hugely popular Cambridge Science Festival and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. The Cambridge Festival will host an extensive series of free, online events between 26 March – 4 April this year.
With the museums closed during lockdown, it’s reassuring that buying a gift from CuratingCambridge.com, you can continue to support the museums.
