Head of Growth, Callum McCormick said: “We can’t wait to bring the market to Cambridgeshire and hope local businesses and organisations can help us. Ideally we are looking for underused car parks or other open spaces. We work with a lot of developers and car park operators and use those spaces while they wait for development. The perfect size would be 1,500 square metres but open to discussions. The important thing is creating a fun destination for people while ensuring they are safe in the current climate.”
