Cambridge Folk Museum is a bit of a hidden treasure. Tucked away at the top of Northampton Street in an old Coaching Inn it is full of fascinating treasures, delicious cakes and a funky shop.
Find out about Fenland history, see old Cambridge artifacts, look at old toys and kitchen equipment. It is a real treasure trove.
As the only independently run Museum in Cambridge it does really well supporting itself – but of course as ever it needs more funding as some grants it relied on have been cut. The staff there are amazingly dedicated and there is a fantastic programme of talks taking place: Cambridge Women and Work – from ladies of discussion to women of action. Look at their website for more details www.folkmuseum.org.uk
And do come to a fun vintage fundraising for the Museum in the quaint thatched Village Hall at Grantchester. Fun for all ages and a true vintage tea from the delightful Miss Sue Flay.
