There’s lots to do in Huntingdon this Summer
It looks like summer may finally be here and I am sure, like us, fingers are crossed that the final stage out of lockdown is able to proceed on 21 June.These two things together herald a tentative step towards a reappearance of outdoor events for all to enjoy with many community organisations keen to welcome you back to their fairs, galas and carnivals.
Here at Huntingdon First we are working on our plans for future events including a Summer Family Fun Day on 31 July, details of which we look forward to being able to share with you in our column next month.
We know that many of Huntingdon’s family favourites will see a return this year from the Riverside Gala on 3 July to Huntingdon Carnival on 7 & 8 August. For something a little more ‘Niche’ the team at Niche Comics, celebrating their 10th year, are hosting a range of acoustic nights and workshops with the Independent Bookshop Week also taking place from 19th to 23rd June.
If the arts and history are more your bag Shakespeare at the George is back from Tuesday 22 June to Saturday 3 July and the Cromwell Museum have a Town Centre Art Trail running from 29 May to 25 July which includes 12 works of art; replicas of items from the museum’s collection and situated at 10 locations around the town.
I think what I am trying to say is there is plenty to see and do in Huntingdon! There is no better time to visit, shop, eat, drink and support your local town.
