VOL 21

@ CUC Wine Bar

Every PechaKucha Night is different and no-one ever really knows what to expect! 

What we do know is that the talks are always worth hearing, whether they're frivolous or profound, enlightening or pure entertainment. 

PechaKucha Cambridge has featured speakers from many different disciplines including science, art, design, photography, fashion, architecture, mental health, sport and more.

If you're drawn to the unexpected, come and join us and if you'd like to know more about presenting at a PechaKucha night, please get in touch!

In Defense of Pigeons

@ VOL 21 ON JUL 17, 2019

Let's face it. Pigeons get a bad rap. They're accused of being dirty, greedy, aggressive and worse. Max Jung paints a very different picture of beautiful, iridescent, brave, and much-decorated war heroes. As he says, "If we provided pigeon loos, pigeon poo would be less of a problem." Makes you think ... he might have a point.
