The Cherry Hinton Festival has a long history as a time of celebration for the harvest safely gathered in and of the years work successfully completed.  It continued yearly until the Second World War. Post-war Cherry Hinton didn’t have the heart to recapture those carefree days, but the festival was eventually revived in 1985, with the whole village invited to join in the preparation and planning of the event. The Festival has continued and grown every year since.

Savate Defence (self defence training) for all Adults, 7.00 - 8.00pm
Taking bookings now

Our self defence courses are designed for adults and teenagers, and will introduce the concepts and skills necessary for self defence in a safe and enjoyable training environment. The best form of self defence is to not be in a situation where you may be vulnerable or at risk. Whilst an obvious statement, it is not that practical in the real world. In the event that we have been unable to avoid a potentially risky situation, and we find ourselves in immediate danger, we may need to employ a physical response. Anything you do should be simple and effective.
