Cycle of Songs is an Arts Council England funded project commissioned by Cambridge City Council, devised by the award winning Pilot Theatre and Historyworks to mark the Tour de France visit to Cambridge on 7th July 2014.

This project showcases and celebrates the talent and diversity of Cambridge and includes many local people of all ages sharing their voice and celebrating the city in song. Share our FILM demonstrating the talent and musicianship and stories at the Cambridge locations along the Route by clicking here.

Nine pieces are commissioned from a wide range of composers and poets, inspired by historical research & based on words from original sources of fascinating & quirky stories at iconic locations along the Tour's route in Cambridge.

The songs are all performed by local choirs, musicians and poets to make a free app for Cambridge to leave a lasting digital legacy. Apple users can download it by clicking here and Android users can download it by clicking here.
