Join us in celebrating Cambridge's sister city connection with Le Quesnoy on Bastille Day and through the July school holidays - there's things for kids & adults to do! We look forward each year to our shops and cafes that get into the French spirit. So grab your beret and let's go French for the day!

For the kids - all through the school holidays

  • Letters to Le Quesnoy - 12th -23rd July, children aged 6-12 can write a postcard to children at Chevray Primary School in Le Quesnoy, France. Simply pick up a Cambridge-themed postcard for free from the Cambridge Museum, Library or i-SITE, write a message or drawing on the postcard and drop it in the Le Quesnoy box at any of these three venues. All the postcards will be packaged up together and sent to Chevray School.
