Mill Road Fringe

The Mill Road Winter Fair Committee doesn’t just organise the annual Winter Fair. Thanks to funding from Love Mill Road, we also run Mill Road Fringe events throughout the year. These nurture and celebrate Mill Road’s creativity by delivering local projects and encouraging community interaction. Events are free and open to all.

The 2023 Mill Road Fringe programme will include:

  • A Summer Shindig on Romsey Rec (Vinery Road Park) on Sunday 9 July from 4pm to 8pm, featuring live music from Colonel Spanky’s Love Ensemble (and friends), children’s activities, yoga and charity stalls. Bring a picnic to meet up with friends and neighbours, and enjoy a late afternoon of music in the park.
  • An Autumn Mini Film Festival at ARU’s Covent Garden Drama Studio on Saturday 23 September. Curated by Cambridge Film Trust, the programme will showcase a selection of cutting-edge art-house films.
  • A Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness Poetry Evening at Hot Numbers in October. Informal readings and inspiration from local poets and writers.

Plus, in early Spring 2024, we will be holding a Mill Road Charity Shop Fashion Show. We are planning a fabulous evening which will demonstrate why Mill Road is Cambridge’s leading destination for sustainable fashion.

We’d love to do more, so please get in touch with any ideas, or let us know if you’d like to help with, perform at or organise a Mill Road Fringe activity, via [email protected].
