Cambridge University Botanic Garden Sounds Green 2019

Sounds Green Open Air Music – Every Wednesday evening in July 2019 in association with Cambridge Summer Music

A weekly celebration of summer and music, Sounds Green is part of the Cambridge Summer Music programme of events. Set on the Garden's Main Lawn with the Bee Borders as a stunning backdrop, visitors can enjoy an array of live music with family and friends, on a (hopefully) warm and balmy evening.

Music begins at 6.15pm, lasting approx one hour.
Visitors are welcome to stay on and enjoy the Garden until 8pm when the gates will close, and the event is suitable for all ages.

New this year: visitors must purchase online tickets in advance in order to attend the concerts

The concerts are hugely popular and we want to provide the best experience to our visitors so this year, we are issuing tickets to avoid overcrowding and long queues. The tickets are the same cost as normal Garden admission but all paying visitors must purchase tickets in advance which can be done via the CU Botanic Garden website https://www.botanic.cam.ac.uk/whats-on/

Tickets may be available to purchase on the gate on the day of each performance but this is NOT guaranteed.

CUBG Friends & CU Students do not need to purchase advance tickets and can use membership/CU cards for entry.
