It is open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday 14th and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday 15th April. It takes place in the Elementary Laboratory, Department of Zoology, Downing St, Cambridge.

Slightly later in April is the Cambridge Literary Festival 19-th -23rd April. The programme includes “six fantastic events focusing on environmentalism, sustainability and the clumate which are sure to be of interest! The events are diverse, ranging from Gaia Vince‘s discussion of migration in light of the climate emergency to Sarah Raven‘s advice for those who wish to grow their own food to Peter Wohlleben‘s children’s event about the natural world around us.”
