March 2023 News Update

So many brilliant things to share with you this month.

We’ve got two fantastic festivals at Cambridge Junction in April, with the return of both Sound + Vision, with the finest music and comedy here and across the city, and I’m Here, Where Are You? bringing you the most exciting new work by disabled artists. Tickets and passes for both are on sale now.

We love to share the power of contemporary live performance with you and our programme is packed this month. If you’re feeling impetuous its last call for Macondo tonight where the audience become the performers of this radical theatrical experiment. If political theatre is your thing DEAD CATS is the show for you, in a timely exploration of the lies and machinations of our political class. Supersmart darlings of contemporary theatre Action Hero present one of our latest commissions The Talent and we bring you 12 Last Songs, an incredible 12 hour performance exploring people’s work and labour, made by Quarantine and 24 local participants and presented in partnership with Cambridge Festival (and commissioned through the Stobbs New Ideas Fund).

You clearly all love (need!) a good laugh this month, as a lot of our comedy shows have sold out. If you are desperate for tickets to Randy Feltface (TONIGHT!), Danny Baker, John Kearns, Mike Wozniak, or Bridget Christie, only chance you have is to join our waitlist for these. A few tickets are still available though for Comedy Connoisseurs, our new night from the comedy geniuses behind Jesterlarf and the Cambridge Comedy Festival. Grab a ticket now for guaranteed laughter medicine!

Our Creative Learning team are busy delivering amazing work with young people across the city and we’ve just reopened applications for the joyous and inclusive Contemporary Youth Choir. There are also a few places left on our next Industry Evening for young people to find out more about careers in the Arts and Creative Industries. Sign up now!

And lastly, by no means leastly, and to check you’ve read to the very end, we’re looking forward to some banging gigs in the next few weeks. My very personal list of recommends (and the nights I’ll be down the front myself) is Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, The Comet is Coming, Roachford and Nick Mulvey (my tastes are eclectic if nothing else!).

See you here I hope!

Matt Burman, Artistic Director, Cambridge Junction
