Footlights at the Arts

Cambridge University's talented comedy group hit the Arts Theatre

Today’s crop of top talent at Footlights – Cambridge University’s finishing school for some of the best comedians, writers and actors in the country during the last 60 years – comes to the Arts Theatre on 12 and 19 March. You’ll often find Footlights comics performing at late-night ‘smokers’ at the ADC, but here’s your chance to catch them a little earlier in the day.

Presidents down the years have included Peter Cook, Richard Ayoade, Eric Idle, Sue Perkins, Hugh Laurie and Inbetweeners’ Simon Bird, with Germaine Greer, Emma Thompson and Stephen Fry just some of the many other members who’ve gone on to hugely successful careers.

And, if you’re pushed for time to get food, you can pre-order a deli box from nearby Aromi to enjoy before the show. Tickets are from £13.
