The final few days of the Cambridge Autumn Festival are packed with events, many of them free to attend.
The Friday Night Blues concert at Te Awa Lifecare Village’s Woolshed centre features the Flaming Mudcats, a premier New Zealand Blues act that has released four albums and performed globally.
Two free-entry art experiences are open across both Saturday and Sunday. One is ‘Groundwork – Contemporary Sculpture’, an outdoor exhibition at St Peter’s Cambridge School grounds, and the other is the ‘Secret Spaces of Cambridge’ photographic exhibition at Te Awa’s historic Arnold Cottage.
Saturday will also see two different children’s puppet shows, and an afternoon matinee concert at The Woolshed featuring Dennis Marsh and Brendan Dugan. Cambridge Raceway hosts an R18 ‘A Night at the Races’ Drag Show on Saturday.
Sunday is all about the children, with a free Teddy Bear’s Picnic at Leamington Domain, made all the more delightful with the sounds of the Cambridge Brass and Bruised Brothers bands. Food and drink will be available to purchase, with the proceeds going to two playcentres and Cambridge Community House.
