Cambridge Club: Father's Day Festival

A feast for the ears and your mouth, a fab culinary, musical delight comes to the city

The Cambridge Club presents a new one-day food, drink and music event, the Father’s Day Festival, on 17 June.

Headlining the bill is Gabrielle (below), who hit the No 1 spot with Dreams and Rise in the 90s and noughties, and teamed up with East 17 on If You Ever.

Top tunes will be spun from 12pm to 10pm at Haggis Farm, Cambridge, and among the DJs will be Radio 2’s Trevor Nelson and 6 Music’s Craig Charles (complete with his funk and soul club). With more live acts, there’s sure to be something to keep you dancing throughout the day, including Uncle Funk & The Boogie Wunderland, who will be warming proceedings up, and The Interlactic Rhythm Society will provide disco classics.

We Love Food will supply a mouth-watering banquet and to drink you can choose from a wide range, including gin, prosecco, champagne, real ale, craft lager and cocktails.

Churros Bar, The Mac Daddy, Steak & Honour, RaviOllie, Cheesy Does It, Chicken Shack, Fired Up Pizza, Village Deli Catering and Zoe's Ghana Kitchen will be provided just some of the food available.

And, if dads are unsure they can drag themselves away from the World Cup football on TV, there will be a giant screen showing all the action, including Brazil's game at 7pm, and Germany's match at 4pm.

There will be a children’s area and families are welcome. Tickets are £25, or £67 for family tickets.
