The first half of the programme is coming to an end, and our students face their first exams at the end of this week!
That shouldn’t mean, however, that there isn’t time for drinks and a jazz night at the Tram Depot. Looks like this is becoming a regular night out on the programme. As it was open mic, one of our students from Cairo showcased her incredible vocal talent with her own choice of jazz number, in front of appreciative locals!
Although there’s still tram lines visible in front of the building, the Tram Depot, as you can see is in fact a pub. It did use to be the building housing the horses that pulled Cambridge’s trams.
The sign in the pub reads, “If you’re drinking to forget, please pay in advance.”
The “Jam at the Tram” is always very popular.
If jazz isn’t your thing, how about flamenco in the Cambridge University Botanic Garden?
The quartet start out with bulerías: “the rock ‘n’ roll of flamenco”.
Dancer Jesus Olmedo shows us his moves. The audience is shouting “Olé!”
Sounds Green was chock-a-block with music lovers.
It was a really nice evening for a summer picnic on the green.
The students can’t get over how late the sun stays up over here.
You can easily spend an entire day in the 40-acre garden. The sights we explored ranged from greenhouses of giant water lilies to a medieval-style turf maze!
