Wednesday 4th September


Icebreaker Punting
18:00 - Scudamores, Mill Lane

If you have booked a place on the punting trip please meet at the Peterhouse College (accommodation) Porter's lodge at 17:30 to walk down to the punts. If, for any reason you don't manage to meet us there then please head to the far end of Mill Lane (map here) - where the punting company Scuadmores are based. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate any more people on the trip as places had to be pre-booked. Please note that the trip will go ahead even if it rains so it is advised to bring waterproof coats - umbrella's and blankets will be provided by the punting company.

Icebreaker Drinks
18:30 - Cambridge Brewhouse

Drinks and nibbles will be taking place at the fantastic Cambridge Brewhouse pub on King Street (map here) from 18:30. Some drinks will be provided but you might want to bring a bit of cash along to lubricate the evening :)
