I took a stroll around Cambridge's festival of lights last year, but it's back again, bigger and better in 2015. Last year I took a lot of photos and a short video, but this time I concentrated on taking moving pictures. I filmed a lot then chopped it down to a manageable 3 minutes for you.
The organisers say that one of their aims was to bring attention to buildings that might otherwise not be noticed by local residents. Regular readers of this blog will know that there's not much danger of that happening with this local resident!
