Cambridge Talks: 2000 Years of Cambridge History

10 March, 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Join us for Cambridge Talks, a series of events raising funds for the Museum of Cambridge’s fundraising appeal #YourMuseumNeedsYou.

 

The expansion of Cambridge in the last 100 years would amaze and astound our ancestors.

How could their market town, graced with a University, possibly have grown from its three, four or even nine thousand people to this metropolis of well over 120,000, drawing people from all over the globe?

Where they harvested their corn, there are now ranks and ranks of houses. The University’s four or five lecture rooms have now swelled to hundreds of lecture rooms and laboratories.

The story begins with the Roman invaders, two thousand years ago…

Honor Ridout is a well-known local historian, adult education lecturer and Blue Badge Tour Guide.

 

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Museum of Cambridge’s fundraising appeal #YourMuseumNeedsYou, which aims to help us overcome the huge financial blow dealt by the Covid-19 pandemic.   

We want to say a huge thank you to all our supporters who have helped us over the last few weeks and months. So, we have made this event ‘donate what you like’ – you can choose how much to donate in exchange for your ticket.
