Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

We are sorry to announce that the first edition of the Cambridge International Arts Festival 2020 will be cancelled this Summer, following the government advice surrounding public events and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty. We very much hope the situation in the UK will have improved by June / July, however, the current climate has made it too challenging for us to effectively curate and market the festival as planned. We are now looking to host a series of events in Autumn in and around Cambridge, with some events carrying forward from the Summer programme before an official festival launch in 2021. 

Stay up to date with announcements by signing up to our mailing list and following our social media: @cambinterfest

We look forward to seeing you in the future.

We are so pleased to announce the Cambridge International Arts Festival will be launching this Summer 2020! Founded and co-curated by Finn Morrell and Jack Bentinck, CIAF is designed to give a platform to young ambitious artists in our local community whilst showcasing fervent international talent.

The 2020 logo, designed by Chris Margerison is directly inspired by the Cambridge University Press House, the oldest press house in the world! The different shapes and sizes reflect the amazing diversity, depth and breadth of people and stories we have in our community.

In the spotlight...

Oumou Sangaré

Stylish, elegant, feisty and charismatic with a soulful, soaring voice, Sangaré has become an emblem for African womanhood. 

It’s eight years since Oumou Sangaré last released an album of new material and much has changed since we last heard from the greatest living female voice in African music.

★★★★★ “Sangaré tackles the most startling themes in the sweetest tones - even as she tears up the stage” - The Guardian
