Oliver Cromwell’s House is going to take a step back in time with its first ever historical fayre.

The historic house will come to life with costumed traders selling a variety of gifts – including crafts, clothing and food - on Sunday January 29 at 11am.

Demonstrations, talks and presentations from re-enactors will also be included as part of the £2 admission price.

Councillor Richard Hobbs, chairman of the commercial services committee for East Cambs District Council, said: “I am looking forward to seeing the House being transformed for the day for this historical shopping spree.

“The period chocolate demonstrations are going to be a particular highlight for many I feel!”

A full list of traders attending and details of their wares can be found here.
