GRAHAME DAVIES | REAL CAMBRIDGE, LONDON LAUNCH
Join Grahame Davies for the London launch of his book Real Cambridge, the latest in Seren's 'Real' series. Cambridge: the right brain of Oxbridge, the composite capital city of Clever. For eight centuries, this quiet English seat of learning has been one half of history’s longest-running academic arms race. But behind the picture-postcard image of punts, Pimms and polymaths, is another Cambridge: the working East Anglian fenland community that gave us Pink Floyd, Association Football, the Society for Psychical Research, the Cambridge Folk Festival and more. Poet and psychogeographer Grahame Davies explores both Cambridges: the world city and the workplace, the glamorous and the gritty; the famous and the forgotten. He discovers there’s always more to discover about this extraordinary city – no matter how clever you are. Admission is free. To book visit: www.rosl.org.uk
