CANCELLED
We have taken the decision to cancel our Late because of the developing Coronavirus situation.  We are looking at our planned events on an individual basis to ensure visitor safety, and to do this we are taking advice from both Cambridge University and the Government.  If you have booked directly with us for any of the events on this evening, you will be hearing from our Bookings Administrator.  If you booked for a performance of Food and Feuds, you will be hearing from the Cambridge Live Box Office about a refund.

 

See four exhibitions after-hours: Feast & Fast, Inspire, Sharpening Perceptions and Virtue, Vice & the Senses. And choose from four special events on the night:

 

Food and Feuds: Two cooks of Hexham

Witness culinary and theatrical experiment with a performance of Food and Feuds: Two cooks of Hexham, written by Fiona Ellis (pictured). Delving into the life of Hexham's Hannah Glasse (considered by many to be the first domestic goddess) this imaginary time travelling experience, designed to appeal to all five senses, brings Glasse, Ann Cook (Glasse’s sworn enemy and rival) and Isabella Beeton together to cook whilst they talk about their hopes and dreams from conflict to sisterhood. You even get to leave with a gingerbread biscuit gift!
