April 2017 in Cambridge promises to be an extraordinary month. With Easter taking place in the middle of the month, the city is alive with activities, events, shows and much more. Citystay are offering fantastic discounts over the Easter period so book one of our Serviced Apartments for just one night, one week or more and enjoy all the great things on offer.
Cadbury’s Easter Egg Hunt – 1st – 17th April – Wimpole Hall
Someone keeps leaving the gates open and the bunnies are getting into the garden – they’re eating the gardeners’ prize carrots! We’ve hidden the carrots to stop the bunnies eating them all. Can you sniff out the carrots to spell the secret word? Join the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt at Wimpole; enjoy the magnificent gardens in the spring time and eat lots of lovely chocolate!
The Boat Race – 2nd April – London
Although not happening in Cambridge, Cambridge will be being represented in the 163rd running of the Boat Race on Sunday 2nd April on the River Thames between Putney and Mortlake. Cambridge lead the head-to-head 82-79 and will be looking to extend the lead on the back of a victory in 2016. Cambridge to London is just 45 minutes on the train, so you can be there and back in a day!
Cambridge Literary Festival – 18th – 23rd April
Twice each year Cambridge Literary Festival welcomes some of the world’s freshest thinkers to celebrate with us the power of words in all their forms. From novelists, poets, editors and critics, to scientists, politicians, historians and entertainers, the festival showcases the most exciting reflections of the world we live in today. Take-a-look at the festival’s website to find out more about all the events, locations and special guests including the BBC’s John Simpson, Jacqueline Wilson and celebrity chef Tom Kerridge.
Abigail’s Party – 10th – 15th April – Cambridge Arts Theatre
Mike Leigh’s 1977 satirical play about the burgeoning middle class returns to Cambridge Arts Theatre this April. The drinks party from hell begins when Beverly and her estate agent husband Laurence invite round their new neighbours, Tony and Ange, along with the nervous divorcee Sue, who is jittery about the bash her teenage daughter Abigail is throwing down the road. As that party gets out of hand, this one too descends into chaos, and comedy, drama and tragedy combine into an iconic piece of theatre. Tickets start from just £23.
Ventoux – 26th April – Cambridge Junction
Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France. It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the greatest cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions. Join 2Magpies as they re-stage the race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed? A must for all cycling fans, of which there are plenty in Cambridge – the UK Cycling Capital.
