The Importance of Being Earnest, Cambridge Arts Theatre, Mon 9-14 Apr
Oscar Wilde’s much loved comedy comes to the Cambridge Arts Theatre this Spring, and it’s the perfect opportunity to dress up in Victorian garb, carry a capricious handbag and proclaim with great relief that you were able to leave the perambulator at home.

Lindt Gold Bunny Hunt, Hampton Court Palace, London, Fri 30 Mar-Sun 15 Apr
I’m guessing that Henry VIII was a fan of chocolate, and 500 years later, his decadent palace is playing host this Easter to some family events in the stunning grounds of Hampton Court Palace. There’s a digital app to play with as well as lots of royal themed chocolate activities.Hampton Court Palace, Molesey, East Molesey KT8 9AU, Phone – 020 3166 6000 Cambridge Geek Con, Duxford, Sat 14 AprSelf-confessed geek alert!

Cambridge Literary Festival, Fri 13- Sun 15 Apr
Just looking at the line up for this year’s Spring Cambridge Literary Festival makes me want to abandon my life and family for three days and embark on a marathon lit-fest. I pretty much want to go to everything. Tom Kerridge, Ruby Wax, Harriet Harman, Luke Harding, Ruby Tandoh, Lucy Worseley, Simon Amstell and Adrian Edmondson are just a very few of the big names appearing. Oh, and Ed Miliband and Harry Hill will also be there. But probably not together.
