The Big Weekend Highlights

Tuesday 14 July 2015

The Big Weekend 2015 started with a bang with a dazzling fireworks display on the Friday evening. The weekend attracted record numbers and featured amazing performances from Heather Small, Slade & Hayseed Dixie to name a few, delighting crowds on the Main Stage throughout the weekend.

Cambridge residents enjoyed activities ranging from the Home Front Marquee where they could take tea 1940s style to controlling a Dalek at the BBC Make it Digital Tent as well as enjoying the best the food market had to offer. Other activities included the Cabaret Marquee & Ping Pong Disco and the Sports Zone where attendees could get a taster session in everything from tai chi to rowing.  

The weekend was brought to a close with a day of world music and dance as well as food and crafts from around the world celebrating ethnic diversity within Cambridge and of course the hugely popular Cambridge Mela, Cambridge's summer celebration of Asian Culture.  

Cllr Richard Johnson commented: "Big Weekend is now a fixture in people's minds and it's as synonymous with the summer as Pimm's and strawberries and cream in Cambridge, there is so much to do and see and hear; it's a brilliant occasion bringing all aspects of the community together."
