Summer events

We run and support a variety of free events and activities for local communities every summer.

This year we are offering sports sessions, music concerts, family activities and more.

Join us with your family and friends every Tuesday in the summer holiday for free, fun and inclusive Active Family sport and activity sessions. Local clubs will lead sessions of archery, dance, orienteering, skating, and much more.

Music in the Parks is our program of six free Sunday afternoon concerts. All events include toilet facilities and some chairs, but you're encouraged to bring your own if possible. We recommend picnics and deck chairs.

The Mayor's Day Out has been an annual event for over three decades, with thousands of Cambridge’s over-55s having visited seaside destinations by coach. This year, we’re going to Great Yarmouth on Wednesday 14 August.

Join us in the streets of Cambridge on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August for the Out of the Ordinary festival. A range of artists will provide music, dance, physical theatre, visual comedy and aerial displays.

The 59th Cambridge Folk Festival will host popular and upcoming acts at Cherry Hinton Hall from 25 to 28 July. Discounted tickets are available for Cambridge residents.
