The Cam Sax Quartet were one of the acts performing at last night’s Corpus Christi May ball.  As now seems traditional for outdoor gigs, the weather was not kind and after suffering hurricanes in Harston we had both rain (real) and snow (artificial) to contend with in Cambridge. The rain did little to dampen the ...
