Strawberry Fair takes place on Midsummer Common in Cambridge on the first Saturday of June.
Absolutely nothing! It is our strong belief that all music and entertainment should be provided free of charge to the general public. We fund raise throughout the year to do so and your donations really do make a difference.
Yes! This year the theme is “LOVE THE PLANET”.
Our licensing conditions prevent you bringing excessive quantities of alcohol (more than 4 cans), spirits or glass bottles onto site. Random searches will take place. We follow the Challenge 21 policy and are also part of Cambridge Pub Watch.
No fires are permitted on site, including BBQ's.
Please keep dogs on a lead whilst inside Strawberry Fair and clear up any mess they make.
You are welcome to bring your own food onto the site.
No video / photo drones are permitted anywhere on site.
Absolutely. Check any of the Get Involved links on this page, or see our section on volunteering with the fair. Every year, a number people volunteer to help with the clean up following the event. If you'd like more information, just ask any of our stewards.
