Fireworks Punting Tours 2019 


Thanks to everyone who came down for this year’s St. John’s and Trinity College May Ball Fireworks display.

Each year, both colleges are organizing one of the most magnificent firework displays throughout the whole year in Cambridge as part of the May Balls.

With almost 1000 people attending this past year, we’re hoping to see everyone back in June 2019 along with some new faces.

Tickets and dates will be out in April.


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. 



Additional Information

Our punts can seat up to 12 people and are dressed with cushions and blankets. They come equipped with additional blankets and umbrellas in case the weather changes.

Boats leave our stations at 21:30 for public punts and 21:00 for private to get in place for the best views. Fireworks are scheduled to take place at approximately 22:30.

We aim to book each customer from the station requested when making the booking, however on some occasions we may have to swap the departure station. We will be in contact shortly after receiving your request if this is the case.

For late bookings or any special requests, please call our Bookings Team directly on 01223 359750.
