Annual Appeal: ‘Cambridge per diem’ with Rosie Zanders

5 October 2022, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a very special talk with Rosie Zanders, author of Cambridge per diem, to help us raise money for our Annual Appeal.

‘Cambridge per diem: A daily chronicle of Cambridge connections’

Rosie has long been fascinated by Cambridge time and the personalities who have travelled through it. Time is a recurrent theme of this illustrated talk; Rosie will share some personal reflections on the passing of time, whilst focusing on some notable Cambridge personalities. There will be a special mention, of course, of Cambridge connections on 5th October, the day of this talk.

Attendees will also have the chance to purchase a signed copy of Rosie’s book.

About Rosie Zanders

Rosie is a recently retired Cambridge Blue Badge tourist guide. A love of travel and meeting people led Rosie to a long career in the tourist industry, starting with coach tours across Europe to Austria and the south of France, before qualifying as a Blue Badge guide in London, specialising in conference programmes and in-house tours of Spencer House. More recently, as a co-owner and subsequent sole director, of Cambridge Tailor-Made Tours, she has focused on arranging and conducting personalised, tailor-made tours for small family groups and private clients. Her other passion, for reading and language, began with the study of medieval and modern French language and literature at UCL and culminated in the writing of several popular books on Cambridge. Her most recent publication is Cambridge per diem – a daily chronicle of Cambridge connections (Merak Publishing, Nov. 2021); it contains an eclectic mix of Cambridge-related anniversaries, at least one for every day of the year.

Annual Appeal: Saving Our Stories

Behind every single object in our Museum are a whole host of fascinating stories; the story of the person who made it, the person who used it – or even the person who found it in a basement and gave it to the Museum.

Collections care and conservation is a complex and costly business, requiring specialist equipment, training, extensive staff and volunteer time, and substantial storage space – not to mention extremely high utility bills.

So today, we’re asking you for your help. Please help us keep our collections safe so that the unique stories each object tells can be handed down to future generations.

You can find out more about our appeal on the Support Us tab.
