Interesting Facts About The Venue

This attractive market town build 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.
