About the event
The annual Boat Party on the Thames is hosted by the University of Cambridge Association of British and Chinese University Students (ABACUS Cambridge), in collaboration with the Oxford University Asia-Pacific Society.
Approximately 500 attendees, from ABACUS, OUAPS & partner societies, are invited to a night of luxury and grandeur as we sail down the Thames against the backdrop of the glistening London skyline. There will be a myriad of food, drink and entertainment options during the evening, linked to a special theme.
This event not only facilitates cultural exchange between students from all over Asia, celebrating the fusion of Asian Western culture, but also strengthens the bonds between highly qualified students from Cambridge and Oxford pursuing different studies at various levels.
