2022 Spring and Summer Events

I hope it is not too late to wish you all a Happy New Year for 2022.  However, I am just in time to wish you all a Happy Valentines.

After the seasonal festive holiday and the January break, I am now getting ready for our Rural Magpie events. 

First up, will be the monthly Antiques & Vintage Fair at Great Chishill on Sunday 6th March 2022.  This monthly fair, on the first Sunday of the month, will run up and include Sunday 5th June.  The fair will break for two months to allow for holidays, returning on Sunday 4th September 2022.

Once again, Rural Magpie will be hosting the Antiques Fair in the pretty village of Orwell on Sunday 22nd May 2022.

There will most certainly be a fabulous collection of antiques and vintage items at our Cambridgeshire SG8 village fairs. 

And the lovely Jewellery Fairs will also be returning this Spring; with the Great Chesterford Weekend Jewellery Fair being held on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April 2022, followed by the Great Dunmow Jewellery Fair on Saturday 7th May taking place at Foakes Hall.  

The Jewellery Fairs are a great opportunity for talented jewellery makers to showcase their wonderful makes.  

All the Rural Magpie fairs will be catered by Laura Wing at Saving the Best For Last, supplying us with wonderful homemade cakes.

 You may have noticed a wonderful image of blue rings in our promotional material regarding the jewellery fairs, as seen above.  I'd like to thank Jackie Lucas who has been extremely kind in giving me permission to use her image.

Jackie's jewellery is beautiful and inspired by Scandinavian nature and her jewellery is handcrafted using a variety of techniques, to create organically sculpted pieces that are unique and elegant. To see and purchase Jackie's beautiful creations, visit her website Cloudberry Designs

I also thank Cambridge based photographer Tom Lucas for taking the image.  If you need a portrait or lifestyle photographer visit www.tomoliverlucas.com

Keep safe and well, and we look forward to meeting you at our events.
