£100 reward for missing bike

My bike ‘disappeared’ from the outside the Cambridge Arts Theatre on Wednesday 21st October. It is unique, cared for and missed and is a men’s Avanti Blade, charcoal black, flat bar hybrid with Shimano 8spd for geared internal rear hub, rear pannier rack, lighting carriage for detachable lights front and back.

If you know where it is, please help. Thank you.
