Opera On Punts

This past event has already happened. Please take a look at our Upcoming Events Page to see future events.



After a bit of uncertainty due to you know what…we’re delighted to bring you the fifth installment of our infamous Opera On Punts with OPERA ANYWHERE!!!

This unique performance of opera on punts is one of the highlights on our summer calendar and definitely an occasion not to be missed! Self hire or chauffeured punts can be pre-booked here, as well as picnics for the journey, or to enjoy in University parks for the midway interval.

After an opening show at the Boathouse, Opera Anywhere will punt & sing their way downstream to the University parks, arriving around 6pm. We’ll stop off for an hour of picnics & more opera before making our merry way back to the Boathouse for the socially distant crescendo!
