Movies on Grantchester Meadows at Granchester Meadows
28/08/11 - £4 - £12
Follow the River Cam out to Grantchester this August Bank Holiday weekend for another round of cinematic pleasures under the stars, with DIRTY DANCING and SOME LIKE IT HOT. The Meadows will remain serene as you will be issued with an individual FM receiver to listen to the film’s soundtrack through headphones instead of a conventional cinema sound system. Make sure you bring £5 cash as a refundable deposit so that we can issue you with the FM receiver as we create a ‘silent disco’ experience. Call the Box Office on 0871 902 5720 or buy from the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse in person (38-39 St Andrew’s Street, above the Regal pub). Gates will open at 6.30pm with the films starting as night falls - approximately 8.15pm.
Fenland Country Fair at Stow cum Quy Park

Highlights of the 30th annual Fenland Country Fair programme, which runs on the Bank Holiday Sunday (28th) and Monday (29th) just off the A14, include a terrier display, the falconry flying display and parade of vintage vehicles. The scenic parkland setting is a superb backdrop to try your hand at fly fishing in the lake or have a go at clay pigeon shooting in the clay snooker competition. On Sunday, ring two will host the team gundog event which attracts teams from across the East of England competing against each other for the top prize. On Bank Holiday Monday this ring will be filled by some larger four-legged creatures as the heavy horse show enthrals the crowd. Canine companions are welcomed to the show with a wide range of activities they can join in with, from the gundog scurry to dog agility. Admission is £10 for adults, with free entry for children under 11 and free parking. Stow cum Quy park is signposted off the A14, 9 miles from Newmarket.
