Christmas Carols on the River


A festive event on the College Backs

In collaboration with Let’s Go Punting and the Choir of St John the Evangelist, we are now taking bookings for our Annual Charity Christmas Carols on the river event; organised in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

The choir of St John the Evangelist Church will be singing everyone’s favourite Christmas Carols whilst gliding along the River Cam on a Chauffeured Punt at 2pm on Sunday, the 15th December 2019. Join us for an hour-long festive tour along the College Backs with warm blankets and Christmas Lights on board.

Tickets for Shared Tours are available for Adults, Children and Concessions. We are also selling Private Tours for you and your family or your group of friends for up to 12 people.

Enjoy this festive punting experience as well as giving to a good cause this Christmas!

100% of ticket sales will be donated to EACH.




Christmas Carols on the River

Christmas is the time for love and joy and most importantly; the time to support those who are in need. By purchasing these tickets, you will be supporting EACH. This charity helps children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. EACH also support the families by offering flexibility and control over where they receive their care and support. This includes their decision of where their child dies; at home, in hospital or at one of three hospices at Milton (Cambridge), The Nook (Norfolk) and The Treehouse (Ipswich). EACH is an incredible charity that offers a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. For more information on EACH, please click here

Last Year’s Success

Last year, we raised the incredible amount of £572 for Christian Aid, East of England. We also donated £120 to the Choir of St John the Evangelist. This year we hope to do more with your help by purchasing a ticket (or two) for our Christmas Carols on the River event taking place this December. The carol singers will make sure that this Punting Cambridge experience will be one to remember this festive season. Above all, do not forget to sing along.
