Experience the extraordinary on the streets of Cambridge and Christ’s Pieces over August Bank Holiday weekend, when Out of The Ordinary outdoor arts festival will return following its huge first-time success last year.

Join us this August, as festival performance artists bring fantastical worlds of colour, imagination and humour to Cambridge’s historic streets, entertaining and amazing everyone as they go! This summer Out of The Ordinary will be bigger still. As well as taking place on the city centre streets, there’s also lots to enjoy on Christ’s Pieces near the bus station, where people can relax, eat and drink and watch fantastic performance artists. There will be extraordinary performances including spectacular aerial theatre, visual comedy shows, music and dance as well as wellbeing activities as well as some fantastic local food vendors.

Local dance schools, musicians, artists and performers will also be taking to the streets and to Christ’s Pieces over the weekend to showcase their talents.
