Chris Andrews


Cambridge-based singer/songwriter/producer Chris Andrews takes influences from 90s Indie bands and the melodic sounds of The Beatles and Pink Floyd. Chris' originals capture the Britpop sound with sweet, catchy melancholic melodies and lyrics, and fresh jangly guitar chords and riffs.

Also performing at 11.45am at Sedgwick Street

Fruity Clavé Samba Band


Fruity Clavé is a small local samba band, drawing influences from around the world to perform feel good, spicy, toe-tapping tunes.

Also performing at 11am at Cavendish Road

Gog Magog Molly/Cambridge Morris Men


Gog Magog Molly draw from the traditional dances of the Cambridgeshire fens as well as a range of other inspirations including a lamppost, a one-way system, a doctoral thesis and local punting hazards, all done with our own distinctive geometric precision and danced to a high-energy step-hop. Gogs are an easily spotted kaleidoscope of colour right up to (and beyond!) our carefully uncoordinating faces.

Cambridge Morris Men perform traditional English dances in the Cotswold style, using either handkerchieves or sticks.

Also performing at 11am at Urban Larder and 11.45am at the Co-op

The Pumpernickels


An eclectic mix of musicians from Cambridge's vibrant jazz scene, often to be found at the weekly Tuesday night jam session at the Emperor pub (free entry), busking on King's Parade, or playing at the twice monthly Popup Jazz Speakeasy (first Wednesday of each month at the Tram Depot, 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Newnham Croft Social Club, usually free entry to both). Band name temporarily selected for the Mill Road Winter Fair, subject to change as we look for something jazzier.

Also performing at 12.45pm at Sedgwick Street

Vince Taylor


If you like songs about dead cats, beach huts without toilets and what comes up on your phone when you are waiting for an important message, then my songs are for you.

Also performing at 3.45pm at Sedgwick Street

Marimba Duo


We play folk songs from Southern Africa and some pop covers. It's fun and vibrant music which is sure to get the crowd moving!
