We are very disappointed to have to tell you that we are having to cancel the January 2nd and 3rd 2022 St. Ives Antiques Fair due to circumstances beyond our control and for reasons, surprisingly, non COVID related!
We have been informed by the Burgess Hall management that they have come in today to discover that they have had a major power failure over the Christmas period which had meant they cannot guarantee to provide us with a venue for both or either of the days so we have reluctantly decided to cancel both days of the Fair.
As the Hall cannot guarantee that they will be up and running or have electricity by January 2nd, and rather than run any risk of getting you all there only to find that we are turned away, we have decided to cancel both days of the January 2022 Fair.
The NEXT St. Ives Antiques Fair will be held on 19th and 20th February 2022.
St. Ives Antiques Fairs are held six times a year in the air-conditioned Burgess Hall, One Leisure Centre, Westwood Road, St. Ives, Cambs, PE27 6WU.
Amenities at the Fair.
As well as providing a spacious hall for around 40 specialist antiques dealers, there is free parking and on-site catering. This includes a licensed bar and a selection of hot and cold drinks and refreshments.
Antiques for your perusal and enjoyment.
We offer an interesting mix of antique experts offer a wide array of attractive treasures from the past that often serve as inspiration for the future, especially in our homes and interiors. For fashion fans you will find a lovely selection of vintage accessories, handbags, scarves and both costume and precious jewellery. Also on offer are clocks and watches, postcards, pictures and paintings, militaria, fine glass, porcelain and china. You will find this includes a range of highly collectable and very fashionable Moorcroft - an opportunity for a good investment which may promise better returns than many savings banks at the moment. Why not come along and see us at our next event? You won't be disappointed.
The St. Ives Antiques Fair is open 09:30am - 4:30pm each day.
Entry prices £2.50 adults, £2.00 concessions (over 65 and students).

Directions to The St. Ives Antiques Fair
Due to the completion of the new A14 at the A1 end and the complication of the closure of the old A14 from Spittals roundabout at Huntingdon to the Godmanchester exit, where the old A14 now becomes the A1307 here are some directions for reaching us in St Ives:
Coming from the West on the A14
You will now fly over the A1 at Brampton Hut (you can also exit here if you want the hotel or services) and head directly for Cambridge. Take the first exit after this - about 5 miles -to the B1198 signposted to Godmanchester and Royston. Turn sharp left at the top of the slip road to head for Godmanchester 3-4 miles. At the second roundabout (the big one under the original A14 now designated the A1307) turn right onto the A1307 and you'll have a traffic free run to the St Ives turn about 2 miles down the road.
Coming from the North on the A1
Ignore the old turning to Huntingdon down the old A14, which is now blocked at Spittals roundabout, and continue down the A1 to the new A14 signposted Cambridge which turns off about 2 miles further on.
Take the first exit after this - about 5 miles - to the A1198 signposted to Godmanchester and Royston. Turn sharp left at the top of the slip road to head for Godmanchester (3-4 miles). At the second roundabout (the big one under the original A14 now designated the A1307) turn right onto the A1307 and you'll have a traffic free run to the St Ives turn about 2 miles down the road.
Coming from the South on the A1
Turn off at the A428 towards Cambridge just after the Black Cat roundabout. After about 6 miles at Eltisley take the B1040 to meet the A1198 Papworth bye-pass. Turn left on the A1198 to Godmanchester and at the first roundabout take the second exit to Hilton and St Ives.
Coming from Cambridge on the A14
There are two options:
One is to follow the A14 west as far as the Cambridge services then follow the signs to Fenstanton, St. Ives and Godmanchester (the turn off is just before the second white suspension bridge) the slip road leads to a roundabout where you take the 4th exit - (N.B. take good care here follow the white signs to Fenstanton and St Ives NOT the Green signs towards Huntingdon see below) - which takes you over the A14 and then runs along the far side on the old road now designated the A1307, turn off at the St.Ives turn.
Two is instead of turning off the A14 at Cambridge carry straight on to the A428 signposted Bedford. When you reach the end of the dual carriageway (about 8 miles) at Caxton Gibbet turn right onto the A1198 and follow it to Godmanchester passing over the new A14 in the process. At the second roundabout (the big one under the original A14 now designated the A1307) turn right onto the A1307 and you'll have a traffic free run to the St Ives turn which is about 2 miles down the road.
Coming North on the M11
You will be led directly onto the A14 through the 50mph and then the 40mph sections then follow the option One above.
Note: If you inadvertently get onto the new A14 after the Cambridge services there is no exit until you reach the A1 and turn off at the Brampton Hut Services where you will have to turn back onto the A1 going south and thence left onto the new A14 exiting at the A1198 (see directions from the North) and thence into Godmanchester and back down the old A14 (A1307) to St Ives. A long way round and best avoided at all costs!!
