14th – 16th June
Peterhouse Scholar’s Garden
The team behind One By One (“Congratulations…whoever you may be” **** – Tab, “Put this on again” 9/10 – TCS) and Grey Matters (“Uplifting, eye opening” **** – Tab; “a superb dramatic experience” ***** – Varsity) return with a brand new immersive show on an unprecedented scale in Cambridge.
Saturnalia is a garden party like no other. Hosted by the notorious all-female drinking society, the Saturnians, its reputation grows year on year with each fresh controversy that surrounds it. This year, you have the opportunity to join them for an afternoon of hedonistic excess. The Saturnians have thrown off the shackles of propriety a long time ago, and they hope that you will join them. Only the most dedicated disciples of debauchery can hope to earn a seat at their table – do you have what it takes?

Food and drink not provided. Please bring your own offerings to the feast.

Dress code: smart casual.

Contains strong language, partial nudity, and scenes of a sexual nature. Not suitable for under 16s.

This in an immersive performance which requires audience movement and interaction, with limited seating.


We are organising a short-term exchange between the Sorbonne and Cambridge students.

This is open to anyone of any subject or level of proficiency in French, and ideal for those who would like to:

  • improve their spoken French
  • spend time in Paris – with Parisians
  • expand their international network

By ‘short term’ we’re talking one or two weeks, and the organisation is entirely flexible – you can do the exchange whenever you want as long as both you and your French buddy can make it.

Please email to express interest or if you have any questions.

Johnian Sailing Trip

I matriculated in 1972, and I have been thinking for some time of ways
to contribute something back to the college, beyond the obvious routes
of direct donation or legacy.

As well as being a full-time academic, at the Open University, I am
also a (fairly) keen yachtsman.  I have operated my current boat, “O.D.1”, as
a sail training vessel since 2004; I therefore have to comply with all
the MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) requirements both for the
boat and for me as skipper.  In fact, these rules are the same for a
sole trader, such as myself, operating skippered charter as they are
for any of the larger (UK) companies offering such a service.

I have entered the boat into the Falmouth – Royal Greenwich Tall Ships’
Regatta ( ) at the end of August,
and I would like to offer places on the race to current junior members of St.
Johns, at a discounted rate.

The trip, from 26th August to 8th September would include a delivery
trip from Plymouth to Falmouth, three days of shore-side activities in
Falmouth, the race itself, a cruise in company to Greenwich, and a
couple more days in port.

The “commercial” price, advertised on the boat’s website at, is £450 a head for the 13 days; I would be
looking at something like £325 a head.


As a sail training vessel, O.D.1 complies with the Department for
Transport Code of Practice for Small Commercial Sailing Vessels (the
“blue” code –
ga- pleasurecraftandsmallships/mcga-dqs-cvs-newsletter.htm ).  She was
re-certified to this standard in March of this year.

As Skipper, I hold an RYA Yachtmaster (Ocean) certificate, with a
current “commercial endorsement”.

The vessel is insured for skippered charter, and I am in the process
of arranging a specific endorsement to cover the race itself.

I can provide copies of all of the above documentation, should they be
required, or expand on the requirements of the various certifications
and inspections involved.
