Libraries across Cambridgeshire will play host to a new season of arts as part of ‘The Library Presents’ scheme.

A range of performances and activities attracted nearly 400 people ahead of the autumn season starting from September 21 to December 15, allowing people whatever their age or interests to take part.

Various arts and craft workshops, including drama and lantern-making will also take place across 23 libraries, spanning from Chatteris, March and Wisbech to Ely, Burwell and Soham.

Councillor Steve Criswell, chair of the community and partnership committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "There are so many different arts activities this autumn, including theatre and music performances, puppetry and comedy for families and workshops that appeal to young people as well as adults.

"I would also urge people to go along to their library between 9 September and 11 October to have their say on the content of the following Spring season's programme."

Hedley Swain, south-east area director for Arts Council England, added: " 'The Library Presents' continues to illustrate the essential role that libraries have in our communities and I know it will continue to offer people exciting new experiences, right on their doorstep."
