What’s on this Week – Mon 11 June – Sun 17 June
MON 11 JUNE - SUN 17 JUNE
The Gog Cheese Festival, The Gog, Sat 16 Jun
This is a cheese-lover’s paradise. Some of the UK’s most renowned cheese makers will be appearing at The Gog’s annual festival of all things cheesy. Neal’s Yard Dairy, Stichelton, Poacher, Kirkham and Montgomery’s are all attending and there are bound to be tasty morsels to sample and a delicious range of new and exciting accompaniments to take home with your cheese. And if you are ever so slightly obsessed with cheese (guilty), then you’re going to need a very capacious bag. Suitcase, anyone?
World Naked Bike Ride, Sat 16 Jun, Cambridge
Okay, forgive me, this is included with tongue firmly in cheek. But hey, could be fun?!
EACH Milton Gala Day, Sat 16 Jun
This charity gala day in aid of East Anglia Children’s Hospice has everything you’d want for a good, old fashioned family day out. Craft stalls, entertainment, bouncy castles and refreshments.
10am-3pm, Milton Hall, Ely Rd, Milton, CB24 6WZ
Gabrielle, Craig Charles, Trevor Nelson, The Cambridge Club, Sun 17 Jun
Dad dancers beware! This Father’s Day concert puts a shot of pop nostalgia into your celebrations and gives every man in your life the opportunity to dig out their best sock/sandal combo and rock the (grass) dance floor. However, this new music and food festival just outside Cambridge is in danger of being seriously cool and as well as a trendy artist line-up (Gabrielle, Trevor Nelson, Craig Charles), they’ve got gin, prosecco, kids entertainment and food stalls to keep you dancing all night long. Dreams can come true.
12-10pm, Haggis Farm, Cambridge CB3 7AT
Late at Kettle’s Yard, Fri 15 Jun
Join Kettle’s Yard after hours for a chance to explore Anthony Gormley’s latest exhibition SUBJECT, in which the artist asks us to re-think our experience of space. There’s also live music, poetry reading, pop up talks and a selection of food and drink.
6-9pm, £5, booking recommended, Kettle’s Yard, Castle Street, Cambridge, CB3 0AQ
