Things to do in Cambridge this Winter

As we’ve been walking around the city centre today, we relaized that the Christmas tree in front of the Grafton Centre is already set up. This gave us the idea to collect the Top 5 Winter Activities in Cambridge this year.

1. The Big Switch On

The Big Christmas Lights Switch On will take place this year on Sunday 18th November from midday. Christmas entertainment will take place from local schools, performing arts groups, choirs and singers. This year, Cambridge born Jonnie Peacock MBE will be helping us switch on the Christmas lights.
