Have your say in arts events at Cambridgeshire libraries in 2023

Cambridgeshire residents have an exciting opportunity to decide which arts events will take place across the county’s libraries later this year.

People can help decide the line-up for The Library Presents - a vibrant and inclusive programme of arts activities which will include: music, theatre, art, dance, storytelling, comedy, puppetry and digital arts.

A selection of performances will be published online and in libraries from until March 22 for residents to make their choices. The events which are chosen will take place this summer and autumn at libraries that include Chatteris, March and Wisbech.

People are being asked to have their say on events they would like held in libraries this year. (62884640)

“There are so many options to choose from and I would encourage anyone with an interest in the arts to either visit their local library or go online to explore what is on offer and make their selections before the deadline.”
