Two months in Cambridge

on August 16, 2021

We’ve had a wonderful time staying with an old friend in central Cambridge. Although we’re here for another fortnight, I wanted to share are the highlights so far:

Cambridge Shakespeare Festival

Open air theatre is a particular delight and when plays are staged in Cambridge college gardens, there can be few better venues. Over a six week period we’ve seen plays that I know and love including Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, A Comedy of Errors and two plays which were new to me, Richard III and The Merry Wives of Windsor. Richard III wins the prize for the most gruesome and A Midsummer Night’s Dream was a sheer joy.

More Gardens

We’ve spent many happy visits to National Trust properties around Cambridge. As the weather has changed we’ve viewed herbaceous in all their glory and past their best.

Other summer stuff

A summer post about Cambridge would never be complete without cows, a picnic and some punting.

Watch this space to find out what our final two weeks will hold.
