Guy Fawkes Night (also known as Bonfire Night) is a firework festival in Britain. It remembers the Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605. On that night some people plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament with the King inside. In the evening people light large fires called ‘bonfires’, burn figures called ‘Guys’, eat food like baked potatoes and watch fireworks displays.
The CCL team will be at Midsummer Common in Cambridge tonight to watch the fireworks. Come along if you’re in the city! If you aren’t, then here are some useful resources for finding out more about the festival.
…and here is a fun video explainer
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival to all our Chinese friends from everyone at CCL.
If you aren’t sure what Mid-Autumn Festival is, here is a pack of resources from The British Council and The Times Educational Supplement.
CCL was proud to participate in and sponsor the 2018 Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival which was held on Jesus Green on 17th June.
The event was held to celebrate cultural diversity in Cambridge and raise funds for East Anglia Children’s Hospices. A number of distinguished guests attended the event, including a representative from the Queen, The Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Dr. Andrew Harter, the High Sheriff of Cambridgeshire, Mr. Daniel Zeichner, Member of Parliament for Cambridgeshire, Mayor of Cambridge, Mr. Nigel Gawthrope, and ex-mayor of Cambridge, Mr. George Pippas.
The event attracted thousands of attendees, with 16 teams in the dragon boat race, nearly 20 performances and 15 food stalls. CCL was proud to support this event and raise funds for E.A.C.H. It is worth mentioning Cambridge University dragon boat team won the Oxford University dragon boat team.
