Cambridge Folk Festival, 27 – 30 July 2017
I am writing to inform you that once again Coldham’s Common is to be used as a campsite for patrons of the Folk Festival.
Every effort will be made to ensure that any inconvenience to the residents during this period is kept to a minimum. The arrangements for the weekend are as follows:
1. Folk Festival patrons will arrive at the site from 10.00am on Thursday 27 July onwards. The site will be vacated on Monday 31 July.
2. A regular bus service will be provided running to and from the site to Cherry Hinton Hall.
3. The campsite will be stewarded throughout the weekend.
4. Should you experience any problems resulting from the camping arrangements on Coldham’s Common please do not hesitate to contact the Coldham’s Common site office on 01223 792521 or the Festival HQ at Cherry Hinton on 01223 792511 – operating from Thursday 27 July to Monday 31 July, 9.00am – 12.30am (2.00pm Monday).
There will be a children’s concert with The Fabularium Theatre Company – presenting ‘Reynard The Fox’ on Sunday 30 July between 11.30am and 12.30pm at the main site (Cherry Hinton Hall) (Doors open at 11.00am). Tickets are limited and available in advance to City residents from the City Centre Box Office and at the Cherry Hinton Hall site box office, subject to availability. They cost £4 for accompanying adults and £2 for children under 14 years old (children must be accompanied by an adult).
We are confident that this year’s Festival will continue its tradition of being a successful, trouble-free event. We would like to thank you and all local residents for your continued co-operation and support of the Festival.
