What’s on in Suffolk & Cambs this February

From watching some of the biggest names in comedy to trying out new cafes and enjoying a spot of star-gazing, there's loads to do in your hood this month!

EAT & DRINK 

Great news, from the start of February Piano Bar nights are back (Fri & Sat) at De Luca Cucina in Cambridge! On hold due to you know what, Muddy’s looking forward to tucking into one of the city’s best pizzas before putting in requests and joining in a sing-a-long again very soon. 

Muddy highly rated Two Magpies bakery has opened a new branch in Woodbridge, so pop in for cakes, freshly baked bread and pastries if you’re in the area. And Suffolk’s Honey + Harvey is set to open its third branch in Ipswich’s Queen’s Street near the Cornhill at the end of the month (the other outposts are in Woodbridge and Melton). Stop by for specialist coffees, locally sourced produce and soon to be the best brunch in town. 

Planning to dine out on V-Day? Some of our fave restaurants have already produced their romantic 14 Feb menus, so take a look at The Rupert Brooke for sharing plates and seasonal dishes, an Unruly Valentine’s menu at The Unruly Pig , passionfruit dessert is one of the yummy dishes on offer at The Weeping Willow, there’s a Valentine tasting menu at Trinity Cambridge, and Michelin-Starred dishes at Pea Porridge in Bury St Edmunds. 

THEATRE

Ian Beale, sorry, Adam Woodyatt, stars in thriller Looking Good Dead at the Cambridge Arts Theatre until 5 Feb. It’s got five-star reviews and is the world premiere of this adaption of the Roy Grace series by multi-million bestselling author Peter James. We’re expecting to be on the edge of our seats unit the final scene. 

Partition, the real-life story of a friendship built around cultural and religious differences, is playing at the Corpus Playroom (1-7 Feb). Set in Cambridge in 1913, Ira Hauptman’s ‘deeply psychological’ play explores the relationship between Srinivasa Ramanujan, the greatest Indian mathematician of all time, and G. H. Hardy, a professor at Trinity college and established mathematician. 

Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities is given a new lease of life with contemporary dance and theatre at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds (9 Feb).

The Greatest Magician: An Evening of Wonders at The Quay in Sudbury (11 Feb) will leave you open-mouthed – we’re talking things like an audience member’s iPhone being transported into a block of ice and people forgetting their own name (presumably not because they’ve been hard at the bar in the interval). 

COMEDY

Host of BBC 1’s All Together Now and team captain on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats, big mouth (literally) Rob Beckett’s coming to the Marina Theatre Lowestoft this month (12 Feb) with his new show Wallop!  

Spend Valentine’s Day with Russell Brand (and a few other hundred people) at his new live show 33 at Ipswich Regent Theatre (14 Feb). 

Not your bag? Then try Reginald D Hunter, playing Cambridge Junction (19 Feb) his latest show Bombe Shuffleur. The Live At The Apollo and Have I Got News For You will be discussing ‘the unfolding meltdown of life as we know it’. Amen, brother.

FAMILY FUN 

Any space-lovers in the family will want to join the Orwell Astronomical Society’s Star Party (24 Feb, 6pm) outside Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich. If the skies are clear enough expect to see winter constellations, nearby galaxies, stellar nurseries and star clusters through the society’s giant telescopes. Sounds out of this world (suitable for kids aged 5+ but children must be accompanied by and adult throughout). 

Look out for signs of spring and discover some surprises along the way on a Family Wellie Walk Nature Trail at Kentwell Hall (12 – 27 Feb). Pre-booking isn’t essential, but it’s a good idea as you get £2 off! 

Matilda Jr, the Broadway Junior adaption of the Tony Award-Winning hit, is showing at Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge (25-26 Feb) expect catchy songs, high energy dance and plenty of girl power moments. 

Take part in Explorer Quest at Framlingham Castle (12-27 Feb) where kids get to roam the grounds to find games and activities inspired by lords and knights. 

It’s Snowdrop Season at Anglesey Abbey, with more than 270 varieties to discover. Enjoy the gardens carpeted white util 27 Feb. Click here for more snowdrop walks in Suffolk & Cambs.
