What’s on in April

Well, March is drawing to a grey and damp close here in Cambridge and it feels like it’s been a very long Winter indeed but let’s be hopeful that warm Spring sunshine is just around the corner.  Here’s the what’s on listing for April.  It’s an eclectic mix of events that come to my attention so if you know about an event that could be included, please get in touch through my Contact page.  I’ll update this listing through the month, so do check back when you can.
