Feast Festival activities

Come and find us on Sunday June 30th in the High Street!

It’s our 40th anniversary!

Come and browse our publications about the villages of Histon and Impington, including our latest booklet on properties of local interest (available after the Feast in Histon Library), and find out about our monthly lectures on topics of local interest, our research, and projects

After the success of last year’s Feast Heritage Walk around Impington Churchyard, our archivist, Eleanor Whitehead will be leading a similar walk in Histon Churchyard on Thursday 4th July starting at 7pm. There will be a bucket collection in aid of Feast charities. Do come along!
