Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star and Mouse Cinema, Madingley Hall, Sat 26 May
Ah, Harrison Ford in his prime. This film so captivated (okay, terrified) me as a child that it gave my older brother ammunition for years. And for anyone else in the same boat, now is your chance to re-live this cinematic classic in the great outdoors. Visions of deck-chairs, picnics, and a lush, twinkly canopy of trees beneath the stars makes evil baddies who capture Indie and his gal far more palatable. Set in the walled garden, ticket price includes live music, seating and garden games.
Tickets are £15, doors open 8pm, film screening at 9.30pm, Madingley Hall, CB23 8AQ
Cambridge Beer Festival Mon 21-Sat 26 May, Jesus Green
Check out one of the oldest and largest beer festivals in the country this week on Jesus Green, with everything from cider, perry, cheese and wide range of vegan and gluten free beer options. The festival is run entirely by volunteers and is a great opportunity to try something new. And even if you’re not the pint-downing sort, there’s bound to be lots of free samples to delicately sip…(hiccup!)…
