St Augustine’s was opened in 1898 as the local school, and church, in what was then a rapidly-developing district to the north-west of Cambridge. It has always functioned as a dual-purpose building, and when the school moved to Mayfield Primary School,  it has served very effectively as a community centre.

This Victorian-themed weekend of events will celebrate the building’s heritage 120 years after it first opened, and its lively and diverse present.
