A-Ha Electric Summer 2018 Tour, Cambridge Glass Stadium, Cambridge, Sun 10 June
For those of us who remember them the first time around, A-Ha have always been cool. Their particular brand of Norwegian synth pop echoed was on everyone’s walkman as lead vocalist Morten Harket (who, incidentally, hasn’t aged a day) sang about the sun and tv’s.

Fish night, The Three Horseshoes, Madingley, Fri 8 Jun
Now, I’ve tasted the fish at this gastro-pub, and it was memorable. So why not kick-off summer with a night of fresh fish dining at the Three Horseshoes? Oysters will be on the menu, so make sure you’re with someone you want to impress…wink, wink.

Notflix, Cambridge Junction, Fri 8 Jun
If you haven’t heard of notflix, I urge you to check them out. They improvise comedy musicals based on audience suggestions and they are making waves across London venues as we speak. The name, Notflix, implies that this group thinks life is better as a musical. And who are we to disagree. This will be funny, accomplished and an experience not to miss.
