This festive season, the Traditional Punting Company in collaboration with Lets Go Punting, invites you to partake in a cherished Cambridge tradition – Christmas Carols on the River. Set against the idyllic backdrop of the River Cam, adorned with the architectural elegance of the College Backs, this event isn’t merely a punt tour; it’s a festive odyssey for a noble cause. Gather your loved ones on Saturday, December 9th, 2023, at 2:15 pm, and join us for an hour-long carolling cruise featuring the heavenly voices of the St John the Evangelist choir.
Why Christmas Carols on the River? Because it’s more than just holiday cheer; it’s a gift of hope and support to children in need. This year, every note sung and every ticket purchased will benefit Tom’s Trust.
– 100% of ticket sales will be donated to Tom’s Trust – supporting children with brain tumours and their families

A Christmas Carol Like No Other
Amid the crisp air and festive lights that adorn the charming city of Cambridge, the Traditional Punting Company’s Christmas Carols on the River stands out as a beacon of joy and generosity on the winter calendar. This much-anticipated event transforms the River Cam into a floating concert hall, resonating with the harmonious sounds of cherished carols—a heartwarming tradition that uplifts the community spirit and champions a noble cause.
Every ticket you purchase is a pledge of hope, as we donate 100% of the sales to a carefully chosen charity each year. Your participation is an act of kindness that extends far beyond the banks of the Cam—it’s a lifeline for those grappling with life’s sternest challenges. Together, we’ve turned our Christmas Carols event into a vessel of change: from supporting EACH in 2019 with £553, rallying for Blue Smile with £770 in 2021, to reaching a milestone with £830 for Cambridge Aid in 2022. This year, we’re steering our efforts towards an ambitious goal for Tom’s Trust.
