    WelcomeTheres no denying that July was a brilliant month for Cambridge. Le Tour passed through; the Big Weekend blessed (for once) with glorious sunshine partied; Open Studios inspired; the Folk Festival celebrated its 50th birthday and the Secret Garden Party did what it does best o ering up a hedonistic shindig like no other. But if youre fearing an anticlimax in August, dont. Not only does the fantastic Romsey Art Festival return for its second year, the Shakespeare Festival continues this month with a whole new set of the Bards best to enjoy in some of Cambridges most beautiful gardens. Lodestar, the boutique, family-friendly festival in the Fens, is back 29-30 August (page 21), whilst over at Wysing in Bourn theyre preparing to push boundaries with Space-Time: The Future; a female-fronted music and arts extravaganza (page 35). Also, rather excitingly and a little earlier in the calendar than usual, the Cambridge Film Festival kicks o this month, o ering up a typically brilliant feast of cinema, from indie arthouse fl icks to Hollywood blockbusters, as well as a host of fi lm screenings in some wonderfully unusual locations. Turn to page 17 to read all about it. Enjoy the issue and see you next month!

    5things to dothis monthWATCH AN ACTING LEGENDActing stalwart Alison Steadman, star of Gavin & Stacey, Pride and Prejudice and Abigails Party, brings her considerable talent to Cambridge in Thrse Raquin. Showing at Cambridge Arts Theatre, 25-30 August, Emile Zolas hot-blooded tragedy takes us to the back streets of late 19th-century Paris, where a beautiful, trapped heroine plots her escape...www.cambridgeartstheatre.com

    GO TO THE FLICKSTake your seats for the Cambridge Film Festival, starting 28 August, and promising a diverse o ering of feature fi lms, family fl icks and outdoor screenings. Theres a strong crime drama leaning and strands on Catalan Cinema and German director Gerhard Lamprecht, while acclaimed new releases include Night Moves with Jesse Eisenberg and Alpine Western Night Will Fall. And dont miss the outdoor riverside screenings on Grantchester Meadows.www.cambridgefi lmfestival.org.uk

    FIND A VINTAGE TREASUREWed happily kit out our entire homes with the beautiful furniture from Shepreth-based online shop Homestu With History, so were delighted to report that they're planning a pop-up shop at Burwash Manor this month. From 1 August, youll be able to explore their carefully curated range of vintage homewares and other retro curiosities, which ranges from cabinets to quirky teapots, as well as including a lovely selection of books and toys for children. www.homestu withhistory.co.uk

    TAKE A DIP Yes, there are the hardcore who can be found splashing around in Jesus Green Lido from early May, but for the rest of us, it needs to be high summer before well brave a dip in this rather spectacular outdoor pool. At 91 metres in length, its one of the longest lidos in Europe and theres plenty of space around the edge for sunbathing and general lounging about (they also serve up ice cream, smoothies, shakes and paninis, if you get peckish). Check the website for opening times and entry prices and keep an eye on Twitter @JesusGreenLido for updates on the pool temperature. www.better.org.uk/leisure/jesusgreenlido

    LISTEN TO JAZZ & BRASS IN THE PARKSMake the most of summer Sundays with three fantastic outdoor music events, taking place in Cambridges parks this month.

    Part of Summer in the City, Jazz and Brass in the Parks is free to attend and an ideal way to spend a lazy afternoon in the city. On 17 August, the Lakenheath Silver Band will be performing at Cherry Hinton Hall also famous as the home of the Cambridge Folk Festival. Then, on 24 August, bring a picnic to Jesus Green and recline to the sounds of Jazz Beens. Finally, if youre doing some shopping or catching the bus from town on 31 August, make sure to swing by Christs Pieces to hear Waterbeach Brass.

    All music starts from 3pm, going on until 5pm.cambridgesummerinthecity.co.uk

    NIGHTLIFE

    ST VINCENT Better known by her stage name St Vincent (a moniker inspired by lyrics from a Nick Cave song), American singer-songwriter Anne Erin Clark began her musical career with choral rock/pop outfi t The Polyphonic Spree, which she was a member of before becoming part of Sufjan Stevens touring band. It was in 2006 that she formed her own group, beginning her ascent to darling of the art rock world.

    With a shock of mad scientist grey hair (she cites Albert Einstein as her style icon) and model-like features, St Vincent cuts a striking fi gure, an
