Rural Magpie Events

We host established Antique & Vintage Fairs in the Cambridgeshire SG8 villages of Great Chishill and Orwell

Great Chishill is a long running regular fair held on the first Sunday of the month, although not every calendar month. Orwell fair has been well established for over 25 years and is held in the months of May and October.
