CAMA at the Cherry Hinton Festival, Saturday 22nd September
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.

The Cambridge Big Weekend took place on Saturday 14th July, on Parker's Piece. The Academy was invited to participate, and put on two demos, in the Combat Marquee.
The day was baking hot, but between times, senior instructor Ollie Batts and CAMA members talked with members of the general public, handed out fliers, and helped people to try hitting some pads, work with the sticks, and more.
