Biggest and best events in Cambridge Summer 2019

Although Cambridge has a lot to offer all year round, the summer is an especially good time to be in the city. A great choice of events take place across Cambridge throughout June, July, and August, ensuring there’s always something going on to keep you busy. 

To help you plan your summer of fun, and to ensure you don’t miss a thing, we’re taking a look at some of the biggest and most interesting events happening in Cambridge over the coming months.


Cambridge University Botanic Garden – Summer Music

If you love fresh air, green spaces and spending time in the great outdoors, a trip to the Cambridge University Botanic Garden is a must this summer. You can make your visit to this picturesque spot even more enjoyable by booking tickets for one of the up-coming Sounds Green events.

Taking place throughout July, these open air concerts are the perfect way to combine your love of music with your appreciation of Mother Nature. As there is limited availability for each gig, it’s essential to book your tickets early. Pack a picnic to enjoy as the sun goes down or pick up some food and drink from one of the excellent food stands available at the event.

This year, the event – which runs from the 7th to the 9th of July – will feature a fantastic choice of live music acts, a French Market, a Gaming Hub, a Sports Zone, and the ever-popular Cambridge Mela which celebrates the best of the city’s Asian culture.
