about

bad timing exists to create unique live music, sound and art events in Cambridge, making regular events happen in venues of all kinds and in other unusual spaces — wherever they can be made to happen. BT brings touring artists to the city from across the world and works with a core of experimental and innovative artists based in Cambridge and beyond, making connections and seeking out performance opportunities.

BT is interested in live events beyond the 'gig' format and has worked with many of the city's visual arts organisations including Kettle's Yard, Aid & Abet and Wysing Arts Centre as well as several Cambridge city museums to develop its own cross-arts projects and provide opportunities to other artists and musicians to work in new ways.

Founded in 2001, Bad Timing is now in its 16th year of activity.
