On Saturday 9th September, we intend to take full advantage of the 'Open Cambridge' event by indulging in a whole day sampling the intellectual and historic delights of Cambridge (10am-3:30pm) through attendance to a number of 'Open  Cambridge' exhibitions.


Most of the events we are visiting do not require advanced booking, however, the exhibition at Queen's old library requires booking. There are 10 places booked for the PdOC members, if you want to attend this you must sign up using the google form. As there are only 10 places available we will email you following your registration if you are one of the first 10 to sign up, after this time there will be a waiting list, but if you prefer you can book yourself to be sure of entrance. See the schedule below.


The day is intended as an informal, free-and-easy attendance day, so come along to those events that interest you, or which you have time for, if you are unable to indulge yourself for the entire day.
