Cambridge Comedy and Eye Music Day - 3rd-5th August 2007

An August miscellany: It's the Cambridge Comdey Festival in a tent on Jesus Green. Isobel has a couple of tickets, as do several of the "Qualcomm massive" (and attendant connectees). We meet at the Old Spring in Chesterton, before wandering over to the green for a rousing spot of stand-up; next, the office gets its imported iPhone, to much general excitement; in Diss, we watch bread being thrown to the ducks; Eye has its Music Day, so we head down to watch for a bit. Rob "the desk" Folkard is mixing, and neaby, the Eye skateboard/BMX park is being opened by the mayor. Nosher gets "down wid da kidz" for a while as they show off to the camera; finally, it's gig o'clock in Cotton, Suffolk
