Liam Martin- Music on the River 2022

Last Friday we had a fantastic evening punting on the river Cam. Our music on the river event painted the river Cam with love, music and positivity. As our punters glided along the river Cam all the way up to the mill pond and back again, Liam Martin strummed his guitar strings with popular tones.

Special Event Punting

Each year we like to include various events in our punting calendar to showcase the college backs in different lights. Whether that’s the May ball fireworks or Carols during the Christmas period, you can join the river for a different experience compared to our normal historical chauffeured tour.

Liam Martin

Last Friday we hosted Liam Martin on our punting tours. Liam is a singer-songwriter who is based in Cambridge and was his first ever Music on the River event – but it was not his first time punting! He very briefly worked as a punt chauffeur in the years gone by.


As Liam played covers of some classical and popular tunes like James Bay’s famous Hold Back the River, everyone joined in and sang along. Additionally, he included some of his originals that made the evening more special. His music evoked feelings of passion and tranquillity that we had a surprise proposal on board one of the punts. We also celebrated the birthday of one of our wonderful customers.

A Celebration of Love


We at Lets Go Punting were all extremely honoured to host a proposal during Music on the River. The proposal topped off an already beautiful evening. It goes to show how romantic the river is in the evenings.


Punting is the perfect activity for a tranquil romantic evening. The backdrop of the River Cam is exquisite, especially when it is bathed in sunlight. Golden hour is pretty unbeatable, but a golden hour on the River Cam does manage to take the crown.
