We have now confirmed that the amazing Cherry Hinton Festival is going ahead this year and the main event will take place on Saturday 17th September on the recreation ground just off Cherry Hinton High Street – to see more details of this and of the festival events that are taking place on the run up to the big day just check out the festival website www.cherryhintonfestival.co.uk
The other great news is, as the festival is going ahead, so too is the 2nd Cambridgeshire History Fair, which is run in conjunction with the Cherry Hinton Festival on the same day and on the same site. Again you can check out the main festival website for more details.
How about booking a pitch and joining us for the day? We welcome any History Societies, groups, museums, hands on history, re-enactors etc. Click here for a list of the people we had attend the 1st Cambs History Fair in 2009.

We also welcome individuals who wish to showcase their history based interests.

I had a lovely time yesterday as I met up with the Histon and Impington Village Society History Group to tell them all about CCAN, I was treated to a lovely dinner before hand by Eleanor Whitehead, and enjoyed seeing a few familiar faces. Cambridgeshire is blessed to have so many great communities and such a wide variety of history groups. I love getting out and about to visit them. If you would like to know about a history group in your area why not visit the Cambridgeshire Association for Local History website, where you can find details of all the great Cambridgeshire history groups and societies!
