Thing's To Do In Cambridge

Thing's To Do In Cambridge

Written by Indira Bir on 24 May 2018

The wisteria is blooming over the university walls and the sun is shining down on the cobbled streets of Cambridge- there is no better place to be. We feel so lucky that we have a studio in such a wonderful city and one that takes on a whole new life in the summer months. The river is filling with first time punters hoping not to fall in, the air is laden with old tales told by guides about our historical university and the list of things to do and see in the city is growing by the minute.

Let’s kick things off with the Harriet Kelsall Bespoke Jewellery Summer Event which will be held on Saturday 2nd June at our Hertfordshire Jewellery Centre. Pop in any time between 10am-5pm and enjoy a refreshing glass of Pimms®, listen to the local musician Izzy Rowland and join in our amazing workshops for children and adults. The field adjoining our studio will be occupied by the Letchworth Vintage & Classic Car Club which is hosting its annual car show and family picnic so why not make the most of the day and get your picnic blanket out too.

Need to cool down from the summer heat?  Why not pop into our Cambridge Studio & Shop on Green Street where you can sit down with one of our expert designers and begin the process of commissioning a special and unique piece of jewellery just for you. Or perhaps you’ll find the perfect piece for you from our Ready to Wear Collections.

Elsewhere in the city centre the Enchanted Cinema will be spreading its magic across the Gonville Hotel with a vintage inspired experience which will showcase a star-studded lineup such as The Great Gatsby, Grease and Dirty Dancing. There is set to be delicious food and drinks options at all screening as well as live music and pre theatre entertainment.  Find out more at www.enchantedcinema.co.uk
