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.

As the Academy is locally-based, we are pleased to support and participate in the Festival. This year, the Academy had a stall, offering information and advice about our classes and about martial arts in general. We were also invited to put on a demo in the Community Performance Arena. Sixteen members of the Academy participated, including the Savate Tiger Cubs, and adult members of the Integrated Fighting Arts, Savate, and Canne groups.

Thanks to all members who participated, and to their families who came along to support!
