A Day Out in Cambridge Saturday 25 June, 10am – 6.00pm

The Master invites Liverymen and Yeomen to join her for a summer’s day visit to Cambridge, when we will dip into world class art and literary collections, view the city’s stunning architecture from the river, enjoy a convivial lunch and finish our day with drinks in college cloisters.

The programme starts at the Fitzwilliam Museum, flagship of the University’s world-renowned collections of masterpiece paintings and historical artefacts, with two curator-led tours: the museum’s collection of Renaissance paintings and sculpture; then the Magdalene Odundo exhibition and the related modern ceramics collection.

Lunch will be followed by a chauffeured punt trip down the River Cam, viewing seven Cambridge colleges, the Wren Library, the Mathematical Bridge and King’s College Chapel from the river.

The afternoon will include a visit to the Pepys Library at Magdalene College,  a rare example of a 17th-century private library which houses Samuel Pepys’s original diaries; then, time for a further afternoon visit to Kettle’s Yard.

Finally, Pimm’s and canapés in a College.
