Cambridge RAG runs a whole variety of events throughout the year to raise money for some fantastic charities. Look below to see the current ones!

Large Events

RAG Festival: FestivAltruism

Cambridge RAG is delighted to launch our new May Week event – ‘FestivAltruism’ !! Join us FRIDAY 14th JUNE on Jesus Green for an afternoon of live music, comedy, food and drink !! Celebrate the end of exams and the start of May Week at this mini festival in the heart of Cambridge! No better way to end the year than with some FUNdraising, celebrating the best of Cambridge whilst raising money and awareness for some amazing causes!! All profits raised go to RAG’s fabulous 10 nominated charities.


Last year 66 students took part in LOST, raising over £10,000 for RAG ballot charities. Now it’s back, bigger than ever. Another group of brave students will be dropped in a mystery location in the UK, from which they must attempt to make their way back to Cambridge – all without spending any money. Along the way they will be required to perform a number of weird and wonderful challenges in order to maximise their teams’ points!


Jailbreak is one of RAG’s most popular, uni-wide events! Starting on the morning of Saturday 1st February, teams of 2 and 3 will flee from the the starting point of Parker’s Piece, and get as far away as possible in 36 hours. With teams in previous years making it to Rio, Singapore, New York and everywhere in between – Jailbreak is the ultimate excuse to escape Cambridge for the weekend – and all for a good cause!

Small Events

Cam Dine With Me

Cambridge RAG’s Cam Dine With Me is a great chance for you and two friends to meet new people and see another college from the inside! Your team of 3 will be randomly matched with a team from another college. On the 26th October, one team will cook a meal at their place before going to the other team’s college to enjoy a meal on the 28th October. These dates are provisional – if you or one of your team can’t make it, feel free to rearrange the timings with the other group! After your soirée, you will be asked to rate the other team’s food and entertainment out of 10 – the winning team overall will receive a mystery prize!

Secret Santa

Spread the love this Bridgemas with RAG Secret Santa! Fill in our form telling us a bit about yourself and your favourite things, and we’ll match you up with a Secret Santa from another college who will find the perfect gift for you. We’ll also give you someone else’s form so you can put on your Santa hat and find a present to fill their heart with joy! Tickets cost £5 which goes entirely towards RAG’s ten wonderful charities. We suggest a budget of £10 for your Secret Santa gift and we’ll be in touch about how you can have your present collected and delivered to the recipient.

Blind Date

Blind Date forms are now on sale! Forms cost £5 and can be bought from college reps who will be selling them around colleges until 5th February, or purchase one via the Agora link. If you’ve got a specific special someone in mind, be sure to pay a little extra for a ‘bribe’. The form hand-in deadline is the 5th February so be sure to give yours in to your college reps before then. After that, you’ll receive the form of your assigned date ahead of ‘RAG Blind Date’ day on the 13th Feb – be sure to bring your form to Cindies after for discounted entry!
