Saturday 7 July ◊ 12 noon – 10pm
Saturday at The Big Weekend opens with a Bang! At 12 noon we are thrilled to welcome UK Centre for Carnival Arts National Olympic project ‘Carnival Crossroads’ to the event. A massive Carnival progression of over a hundred local Carnival artists and musicians in stunning costumes will take place across Parkers Piece with a Samba accompaniment from the Main Stage! A circus extravaganza follows, giving us a breath-taking, jam-packed hour of the UK’s most skilled circus artists, including headline act, Doug & Ed, as seen on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent!
Saturday is the day the Olympic Torch comes to Cambridge and we wanted to celebrate this by packing the main stage with a plethora of community talent and showcase. Come and see some of the amazing activity that makes our City such a very special place.
The day culminates with a 2 hour community spectacular called A Field For Dreams – the likes of which will never have been seen before in the city!
