On the weekend of October 31st – November 1st, the event will be in the city in order to help raise funds for the Sue Ryder Hospice. Entrance to the event is £3 per person for one day and £5 per person for both days, with under 16’s gaining free entry. 50% of all entrance proceeds will go towards the charity (along with 100% of the proceeds from the raffle and silent auction), and the fact that everyone gets a free cup of tea upon arrival is an added bonus!
The exact location of the event is being held top secret until the end of summer, although visitors can expect an abundance of vintage stalls selling all kinds of things, ranging from vintage homewares, clothing, kitchenalia, haberdashery, steampunk, jewellery and accessories, as well as quality handmade craft items and of course much more.
There will also be a variety of workshops for people of all ages to get stuck into, as well as an authentic vintage photo booth to take a couple of snaps in and a special and spooky Halloween twist across the whole event!
All of this will be played to the tune of music from the likes of Jade May Jean Peters (a star from the BBC’s The Voice) and DJ Tallulah Goodtimes across both days of the event.
Visitors are invited to have fun with the event and are encouraged to come dressed in their finest vintage attire for the chance to win a prize and take the title of the best dressed vintage guy/gal.
The Secret Vintage Fair is an event that was created by Lucy Craymer who first started the event three years ago in Essex and Suffolk and has since expanded the brand into Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire.
Event creator, Lucy, hails from Peterborough and so is familiar with the Sue Ryder Hospice in this area. She said: “Sue Ryder provides exceptional care in our region and we are so lucky to have them here, and we wanted to show our support, I can’t wait to see how much money we can raise for them”.
So far, the Secret Vintage Fair has raised over £3000 for several charities in just three years and all of those involved in the event hope the fair in Peterborough will be able to add to that total and help out the hospice.
Charlie Ives – who helps to run the fair – said: “The best way to stay informed of updates for this event and many others is to sign up to our mailing list, via our website to be the first to find out any news and information on our future fairs and secret locations.”

As someone who has had family experience with the hospice, I can honestly say that I shall be attending this event as the care provided by Sue Ryder is outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble for the carers there and this is a cause that is definitely worth supporting. So why not tag along if you’re in the area!
