Cambridge Junction is delivering a very exciting project this November and needs you to be a part of it.

The Junction are  working with award-winning Australian company Back to Back Theatre to make a new film called The Democratic Set, and would love you to have your moving portrait taken for this alongside people from across Cambridge. The film explores social, political, and economic equity, rights, and opportunities, and they are working to ensure the film properly reflects the diversity of this city and our communities.

You are invited to spend time with the company at the Guildhall, between 1-3 November, to have your personal response filmed. This could be you on your own, in couples/duets or groups, using movement, sound, costumes or props. You can prepare your response in advance or make it the spur of the moment and on the day with the help of Back to Back Theatre’s Creative Team. On the day you’ll have 20 mins with the company to capture your 15 secs of fame (longer for big groups).

You will all be invited to the premiere of the resulting 20 minute film that will be at the end of January 2023 at a location TBC.  Please get in touch at to reserve your slot or if you have any questions.

A fun and refreshing dusky lantern walk in nature on Halloween

Join David Lynch, Mindfulness Coach, and CPFT NHS FT Heart and Soul Chaplain John Nicholson on a 45-minute early evening Halloween walk in nature to reflect on your life and to cherish with gratitude the world about you.

However, these events are also for anyone looking for additional support: you don't have to work here and there is no charge to attend.  Register here
