Spring Festival 2023

Wednesday 19 – Sunday 23 April


Pre-Order or Download a Programme

To celebrate our 20th year we have once again produced a printed programme.  These will be available around Cambridge at our usual haunts, Heffers, the Cambridge Union, the University Arms and various other outposts. If you would prefer to have one posted we will be sending them out at the end of February.

You can pre-order a copy by clicking the link below, a small £2 charge will be made to cover the cost of p&p.

Friends of the festival will receive a copy free of charge and do not need to pre-order.

Highlights at Spring 2023 include…
