Fireworks May Ball 2022

The legendary May Ball firework displays are the high point of the Cambridge year, but Cambridge University wised-up to the trick of swimming down the Cam with your glad rags in a bag over your head - you'll get thrown out!

The best way to enjoy the prestigious events without a ticket is to grab a spot on our famous punts. You'll be able to enjoy the atmosphere and see the out-of-this-world firework displays. Choose a place on our shared chauffeured punts or opt for a luxurious private tour for you and your friends.
