Event description
Join us for a mid-summer evening of entertainment in the beautiful village of Fen Ditton Cambridge

About this Event

Fen Ditton is an historic conservation village popular with visitors offering pubs, off road riverside walks and cycle routes from the centre of Cambridge. It is also easily accessible by car or taxi being close to Cambridge and a short distance from the A14.

The large Recreation Ground is surrounded by trees in an elevated position providing a wonderful setting to enjoy a summers evening with hot food, bar, regular refreshments and snacks while waiting to watch the sun go down and the screening of this epic film, Bohemian Rhapsody to begin.

Bohemian Rhapsody released last year, is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music, and lead singer Freddie Mercury.

Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

“Frankly, if you are not cheering along with the crowd as Mercury belts out an ultra-satisfying rendition of "We are the Champions," then a doctor should check your pulse.”
