Watch Out Festival on Saturday 27th May in the Cambridge Junction from 12pm onwards
“the edgiest contemporary theatre around” The Stage
Cambridge’s annual festival of dangerous new theatre and dance returns in 2017. Featuring world premieres, a UK premiere, previews and more brand new work by performing artists based in Cambridge, Ely, Brighton, Colchester and London, WATCH OUT is Cambridge’s showcase of fresh new experimental work with something to say, developed as part of Cambridge Junction’s ongoing commitment to supporting contemporary performance from local, regional and nationally based artists. The projects and shows this year provide an opportunity to explore, see and engage with our local world in new ways – Cambridge, the local community, the Cambridge Leisure square, Cambridge Junction’s spaces, the wider world, family, strangers, each-other. Whether you like watching from afar or getting right involved, sitting or wandering, love your apps or prefer listening to your radio, WATCH OUT has something for you.

Wheatus on Monday 29th May in J1 from 7pm
After 6 studio albums, Wheatus continue to regularly write, record, and tour. Their ubiquitous debut single ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ (#42 on the BBC Radio One Sales Chart Of The Decade) in 2000 propelled their eponymous debut album to sell more than 3 million copies worldwide. Tickets £19.50. Under 14’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Anglia Contemporary Theatre Tuesday 30th May to Thursday 1st June from 7.30pm
Three devised shows, which are the culmination of work by third-year Performing Arts and Drama students, who are about to graduate from Anglia Ruskin University.
In many ways, these shows are the end – and they are a new beginning. They are a final goodbye and an opening to new starts and new horizons. They are filled with joy and enthusiasm, and a certain kind of sadness and trepidation. They are made of everything we know and everything we have yet to learn and experience. They have been made through friendships and working together, through laughter, talking, improvising, singing, dancing and upstaging each other. They have emerged from failure and success. Join us as we present our three shows – farewells and celebrations. Tickets £11.50 (adults) £8 (concessions) and £6 (students). Suitable for 12 years + and all under 14’s must be accompanied by an adult. Performance lasts 2.5 hours including 20 min interval.
Other shows appearing at The Junction- Ward Thomas in J1 on Tuesday 30th May.
