Celebrating City and County Heritage with the Museum of Cambridge.

A diverse, entertaining and informative programme of over thirty events that will appeal to all ages. Our third annual festival, this year supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and local businesses, is a fantastic opportunity to delve into the past and discover lesser known Cambridge, as well as the city’s connections with the famous and the infamous.

The city and county’s unique heritage and history is brought to life and explored through a wide range of events, delivered by renowned historians, supported by a dedicated team of Museum staff and volunteers.

The venues where the events will take place are: the Museum of Cambridge, Castle Street Methodist Church, Cambridge Museum of Technology, Heffers Bookshop and Corpus Christi College.

The Festival programme is available online here.
