Today is World Environment Day 🌎 and this year’s focus is on biodiversity 🌳 🐝 🦆
The sites where our festival takes place, Cherry Hinton Hall and Coldham’s Common, are two of Cambridge’s biggest green spaces with high levels of biodiversity and a huge variety of species – plants, animals and insects – that thrive there year-round. A big part of our environmental focus is on preserving and protecting these species from harm as we host 14,000 people on the site every year and minimising the impact we all have with plastics and other pollutants.
Check out the info we’re sharing today about what biodiversity is, why it matters, and how YOU can support biodiversity wherever you are in the world. ... See MoreSee Less

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day
Today’s Lockdown Track. Who was there when an unknown called Mumford &Sons opened-up the Thursday night on Stage 2 in 2009? This, Little Lion Man, was their debut single, (they’d already released 3 EPs) and it came out the following week. We had to wait ‘til the autumn for their first album, Sigh No More.

Yes we were right on the front rail in the middle. I have a load of great photos and videos of their performance somewhere😂 We really enjoyed them a lot but we’re still surprised at how big they became. Seen so many wonderful performances from artists at the very start of their careers at CFF, the booker(s) are to be greatly commended👏👏👏
I remember him apologising in advance for the swearing in the song. It also absolutely belted down with rain earlier in the evening (though that's happened so many times I could be mistaken)!
I gave up trying to get near Stage 2 on Thursday. Way too crowded. Time to open up the big stage on Thursday.
Fliss Bocock show Matt this, it was a great start to the festival for us!
We were there, Mike Harvey!

📣 Eddie’s lockdown tune of the day
Today’s Lockdown Track. There were no Cambridge postings yesterday, as we joined others within the entertainment industry to pause, reflect and show unity with the Black community in the response to the murder of George Floyd and show our opposition to racism. Black and Afro-American artists have always been an important part of Cambridge and we recognise their outstanding contribution to and influence on the music we love. Today we celebrate an American singer, actress, guitarist, lyricist, civil and human rights activist, often referred to as "The Voice of the Civil Rights Movement". Odetta is remembered by many for singing Oh Freedom at the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his historic “I have a dream” speech. We were fortunate that Odetta came to perform for us twice, in 1968 and 2000.

Yes many black artists on the bill but sadly so few in the audience. Would love to see that change but no idea how? Just an observation🤔
