Why Christmas Carols on the River?

Charity event for Cambridge Aid

This special event is a highlight of our punting calendar. Each Christmas we take to the river for an event filled with festive cheer all in aid of charity. Carols on the river allows us to give something back to our community and raise as much money as we can for a local charity to support those who are in need. There is truly no better time than Christmas. 100% of tickets sold for the Christmas Carols on the River event is donated to the charity of choice for that year. In 2019 we raised an impressive £553 for EACH, then after a break in 2020 due to COVID, we came back stronger raising an impressive £770 for Blue Smile in 2021. Let’s see what we can achieve this year for Cambridge Aid – a point of last resort for those in desperate financial need within Cambridge and its surrounding villages. Working with over 40 local charities as well as the City Council, Cambridge Aid provides emergency grants to those who need it most.


Winter Punting

Carols on the river Cam

Christmas is the time that we come together and enjoy the festivities with our loved ones. To honour the spirit of Christmas, each year we, at the Traditional Punting Company, embrace the festive period with a music charity event for all to enjoy. Carols on the river is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit in the run up to the big day. Wrap up warm, snuggle under a blanket, and have a hot chocolate in hand, whilst St John the Evangelist choir serenade you with carols whilst you are effortlessly punted along the College Backs. This Punting in Cambridge experience will be one to remember this joyous season. And, above all, do not forget to sing along.
