A feast of fab sounds and a range of eat treats
Cambridge University Botanic Garden welcomes Sounds Green this month, a series of alfresco concerts which see the Garden opening late each Wednesday during July.
Idyllic is an overused word, but relaxing in such a beautiful setting on a summer’s evening, picnic laid out before you and a glass of wine in hand, great live music drifting through the air, you’re certainly getting close. To further tempt, there will be food on offer from the excellent Garden Kitchen (think colourful, hearty salads, homemade cakes and plump sausage rolls), as well as ice cream from Jack’s Gelato and wines from drinks shop Thirsty – or you’re very welcome to bring your own food and drinks.
Music-wise, catch Mentés Másként Ensemble and their Hungarian folk stylings on 5 July, the crowd-pleasing Dodo Street Band on the 12th, versatile ensemble Westcombe Brass on 19 July and Brazilian four-piece Afrosamba on the 26th.
All performances start at 6.15pm and normal entrance fees to the Garden applies.
