Sunday on The Backs 2022

We’re delighted to invite you to this year’s family garden party on Sunday 31 July in the Fellows’ Garden, St John’s College.

The day will be the perfect opportunity to visit Cambridge over the summer with your family and friends and explore the best outdoor activities the College has to offer, as well as enjoy a delicious picnic on The Backs.

For those bringing younger family members, please note that we’re preparing a bespoke activity that will introduce them to the people and culture of St John’s in a fun, immersive and adventurous way – make sure they come along! 

The tickets include food, drinks and refreshments, live music, punting, bespoke kids’ tour, garden games and parking. Guests are welcome to explore the College throughout the day.
