thingsthistomonth do Vintage Fair
Spend a fanciful hour or two browsing the gorgeous collection of clothes and accessories at the Vintage Fair, held at Cambridge Guildhall on 18 January. From 10.30am to 4.30pm, the hall will be filled with rail upon rail of beautiful things, from delicate lace numbers to iconic 60s classics. There’ll be menswear too, plus beautiful affordable vintage bags, jewellery and accessories. Entry is £2. www.judysvintagefair.co.uk
Go to the theatre Cast your eye over the new season programme at Cambridge Arts Theatre, promising a spring packed with top drama, comedy and dance. Highlights include a spectacular anniversary performance of Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, English Touring Theatre’s Eternal Love, Alistair McGowan in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion and family favourite Tom’s Midnight Garden. The Arts Theatre starts the new year with a whole new look, too: after 22 weeks of building work, the previously cramped foyer has been transformed into a smart, open space, with three new bars above in which to enjoy your interval drinks. Says chief executive Dave Murphy: “At long last, the quality of our front-ofhouse facilities matches the quality of the productions on stage.” www.cambridgeartstheatre.com

Sing That Thing! Over the past few months, Cambridge’s Museum of Archeology and Anthropology has come alive with the sound of singing as local people took part in Sing That Thing, led by singing teacher Rowena Whitehead. Now, after drawing inspiration from the museum’s wonderful objects and artefacts, the singers will be performing an a cappella concert at the museum, together with a cappella choir ReSound. It takes place on 21 January, 7.15pm.
Go to a supper club Last month saw the launch of a brand new supper club in Cambridge – and one that looks set to become a regular fixture for food lovers in the city. Franglais Kitchen delivers on style, flavour and innovation, promising dishes you might not have tried before, served in an intimate, friendly environment – making it a great way to widen your circle of friends too. Their next supper club is an IndoChine feast, taking place at the end of the month. Join their mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be the first in the know!
Watch old movies Our own fabulous Arts Picturehouse is rolling back the years and inviting you to see some of your favourite retro films on the big screen this month. On 12 January, set sail with Sinbad in The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and admire the charmingly oldschool stop-motion animation monsters; or get romantic with Brief Encounter, Noel Coward’s iconic love story, on 26 January. www.picturehouses.co.uk
