St Ives Craft Beer Festival

Event Date(s)

28/07/2018 - 29/07/2018 - 2 day(s)

Information For Trader/Participants

The ancient market town of St. Ives will be the location of our Craft Beer and Cider Festival. This will be located on the area known as the Sheep Market - a wide paved area on Market Hill.

St. Ives is a commuter town for Cambridge, Peterborough and London and we expect the weekend to be busy.

This town has a thriving farmers market with upwards of thirty stalls so the space is well used.

We are looking for hot and cold food of all types for this event. Certain crafts may also be appropriate.

Information For Visitors

St. Ives is located 5 miles east of Huntingdon and 12 miles North West of Cambridge and can be reached easily from the A14.

A true part of British history, there are many historical landmarks and a museum.

The event will feature a wide range of craft ales and cider and a good selection of hot food. There will be a stage and live music. It will be the perfect place to relax and enjoy summer with good food and music.

Interesting Facts About The Venue

This attractive market town building on the banks of the River Ouse dates back to well before the Doomsday Book. Known for centuries as one of the largest markets in Europe, St. Ives was a thriving hub for East Anglian trade.

Interestingly, St. Ives is named after St. Ivo who was a Persian Bishop whose remains were discovered buried in 1001AD.

St. Ives was also in the middle of Oliver Cromwell's constituency and a statue of the great man, warts and all, can be seen on Market Hill.

The bridge across the Ouse is well worth a visit and is unusual both in its design and the fact it has a chapel in the middle which became home to the local Prior after the disillusion of the monasteries in 1537.

There are a number of interesting shops, including one of the best whisky shops in the country.
