What is it?
Anyone for extreme improv at The Polar Museum, death at the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Monty Python at The Fitzwilliam Museum, or hands-on art and science at the Whipple Museum?
Well, you’re in luck, as the University of Cambridge Museums are launching Cam Lates, a new programme of after-hours events in Cambridge for adults.
The events promise plenty of laughs, thought-provoking insights, (intoxicating) drinks, and fresh opportunities for adults looking for a different night out in Cambridge. Cam Lates will launch on Thursday 29th September with Wunderkammer at The Polar Museum.
Visitors will have plenty to laugh about as improv comedy group Do Not Adjust Your Stage bring their show, fresh from this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, to museum.
The Wunderkammer show will see polar experts present short Ted-style talks about objects related to human survival in extreme conditions. The Do Not Adjust Your Stage group then create totally improvised comedy, scenes, stories and characters in response. No one show is ever the same…
The Polar Museum aims to get some of their less well-known and more nuanced stories out on display for the event. The comedians will interrogate intriguing and challenging objects from the collection, hopefully bringing their quirks and curiosities to life in the process.
There will also be a late night cash bar and an opportunity to view the galleries by twilight.
