Sunday on The Backs 2024

We’re delighted to invite you to this year’s family garden party on Sunday 7 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 young children, there will be a range of children’s activities including face painting, a bouncy castle and more!

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