Take a step back in time, sample gifts from bygone years and learn about local history at the Lord Protector’s Historical Fayre next weekend.

Oliver Cromwell’s House will once again host its iconic event, showcasing a range of historically inspired traders and craftspeople on Sunday, January 28.

As well as going on an historical shopping spree, visitors will be treated to unusual demonstrations and talks.

Traders confirmed include food, clothing and jewellery stalls, with names as intriguing as The Historical Haberdasher, Mr FossilSpearman supplies, The Roving Apothecary and The Hungry Roundhead – to name just a few.

Councillor David Ambrose-Smith, of East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “I am really excited to see how Oliver Cromwell’s House is going to be transformed for the day.

“It’s such a good chance for visitors to learn more about the period at the same time as being able to purchase unique goods”.

The Lord Protector’s Historical Fayre talks place at Oliver Cromwell’s House from 11am to 4pm on January 28.

Tickets cost £3.
