‘The Library Presents’ is back for a new season of arts in Cambridgeshire libraries this autumn and tickets are now on sale.
The Season starts on Saturday 21 September – taking high quality, affordable arts activities into the heart of towns and villages across the county – until Saturday 15 December.
There is something for everyone, whatever their age and interests, including dance, lots of music to brighten-up the winter evenings, puppetry, magic, comedy and theatre.
There is also a great variety of arts and craft workshops, including arts, drama, lantern making, print making and even science. Other workshops will explore objects from the University of Cambridge Museums’ collections, or help with improving performance skills while discovering the art of African Township Theatre.
Twenty-three libraries are involved this season. They are: Arbury Court, Barnwell Road, Burwell, Cambourne, Cambridge Central, Clay Farm, Cottenham, Chatteris, Cherry Hinton, Ely, Great Shelford, Histon, Huntingdon, Littleport, March, Milton Road, Ramsey, Soham, St Ives, St Neots, Warboys, Whittlesey and Wisbech.
One of the highlights of the programme is the special one-off event in Ely Market Square, in partnership with Ely Markets – Family Day on 23 October. On this day, families will enjoy free performances of ‘Moon’, a spectacular dance and circus production by 2Faced Dance (12pm and 2.15pm).
Another theatre highlight is ‘Greyhounds’ by the up and coming Time and Again Theatre Company, who will bring their clever and charming production to Chatteris and St Neots Libraries. Set during WW2, the story tells of a local drama company battling to overcome the war raging in the skies above them, as well as the tribulations of village life, to stage a production of Henry V.
The Autumn Season brochure is available now and tickets can be booked online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/arts or in participating libraries.
