Have a good week!
Also, here is our suggestion of the week from the Harry Harris LGBT+ library (http://www.lgbt.cusu.cam.ac.uk/resources/library/ ):
LIBRARY CORNER: THE HISTORY BOYS
I’m sure that spending more time in libraries is exactly what you don’t want this week – which is why we’re encouraging you to check out the
LGBT+ Library’s range of DVDs! Today we’ve pulled out The History Boys, a classic Alan Bennett play, for you. Spot the quotations! Play spot-the-college! (Hint: Trinity Hall features twice.) Check out the catalogue for more, and keep an eye out for news of our exciting upcoming move!

Michelangelo Drawing Blood delves into the forces that drove his genius – an obsession with human anatomy, a passionate response to the male body and an equally intense Christian faith. 21st century theatre meets 16th century culture as three male performers bring to life the fluid twists and turns of Michelangelo’s drawings accompanied by music composed by Charlie Barber and performed live on Renaissance instruments.
Tickets £8.50 student/child
