Music on the River

Music on the River is back for 2022 and we couldn't be more excited! We have 3 incredible local artists performing this year: Dorothea, Liam Martin and Ukulele Simon.

This is an evening not to be missed. A truly unique opportunity to enjoy some acoustic music whilst gliding along the River Cam on a chauffeured boat. With sights including Kings College Chapel & The Bridge of Sighs we can’t think of a better back drop.

A perfect Summer Evening on the Cam

After a successful 2019 season, Music on the River is finally  back in 2022. This year we have 3 amazing acts, all with different styles, to entertain you whilst out on the River.

Music on the River is the perfect choice for an evening out which is a little different! Spend a magical evening floating past the magnificient College Backs whilst enjoying some beautiful music.

Our floatilla of boats will slowly glide up to the Mill Pond and back to Jesus Green, the ‘college backs’ with be bathed in the evening sun (we hope) and you will be entertained and enthralled.
