IgersCambridge have teamed up with Visit Cambridge to host their first InstaMeet which will also be in collaboration with IgersUK and Visit England. What is an InstaMeet I hear you say? It is a meeting of like-minded and passionate Instagramers who get together to explore a particular place or City and take photographs. This event is taking place on Sunday 24th March 2019 and could be a great networking opportunity for those looking to get to know local photographers and content creators. Head over to Instagram to find out more – limited spaces available!

Cambridge Drawing Society are holding their next exhibition from Saturday 23rd – Saturday 30th March 2019 at The Pitt Building (Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1RP). Cambridge Drawing Society was founded in 1882 and its members are artists who live within 30 miles of Great St Mary’s, Cambridge. The annual Spring exhibition showcases over 400 new and original works by around 100 different artists.

I visited the exhibition last year and was very impressed by the work on display – a wonderful selection of paintings, mixed media, collage, prints, illustrations and sculpture spanning two large rooms. It is definitely up there as one of the best local exhibitions I have visited – with such a high standard of work on show and a mixed price range for those who might be looking to make a purchase. The exhibition will be open 10-5:30PM with free admission, finishing at 4PM on Saturday 30th. It is opposite Fitzbillies so you get can your chelsea bun fix too!
