Reach Cambridge July 2015: Day 16
It’s Tuesday again and the final week is just racing by! The big thing on the cards today was the Reach Cambridge Talent Show, an opportunity for us all to showcase the secret gifts we had hiding within. First, though, it was back to the nine o’clock start for class and another day of learning.
Once class was through all anyone had on their minds was practice, practice, practice! All around college were the sounds of guitars strumming, hands clapping and cards shuffling ready for magic. The supervisors were in on the act as well; we had spent all day (well, a fair chunk of it) practicing our best moves in an Uptown Funk dance-off for the opening of the show. One final practice after dinner and it was time for an evening lecture on evolution, complete with a few shout outs to some great and good Cambridge students of the past (we’re looking at you, Darwin.) After a quick ten minute break with time for any last minute preparations we finally got the chance to showcase all our talents!
Music, dancing and card tricks wowed us all and nobody in the room could help but applaud the incredible show put on by all. After the first few acts I slipped out for an evening stroll to check all was well with our students out in the city centre. Still, seeing those who stayed the full length leave with huge grins on their faces told me all I needed to know about the standard of the performances I missed. After a pleasant walk around town it was time to bed down and prepare to swap guitar strumming for African drumming at the Sabre Trust fundraiser garden party tomorrow. Fingers crossed the weather holds out!
