Our Cambridge Story

In partnership with Cambridge Business Improvement District (BID) and Independent Cambridge, 14 retailers across the city took part in Curating Cambridge by sharing their stories with the public. From products and premises to founding fathers, shop owners told their tales through creative displays in their shop windows.

“While the University of Cambridge Museums and partners are bringing museums to our shopping centres and parks this autumn, many of our businesses are turning their shop fronts in to mini-museum displays. We have been delighted by the creativity of local businesses who will be telling their stories as part of this truly city-wide celebration.”

“The local independent businesses of Cambridge are a crucial element in keeping the city unique and provide a huge economic as well as cultural contribution. Through Curating Cambridge they are able to tell their story – part historical, part living history – but always individual and always a fascinating insight in to the ever-changing face of the high street.”
