2nd Cambridge CamRuSS Art, Craft and Food Fair 2017
Saturday 3 June, 2017, 12:00 - 15:00
You are cordially invited to come to the Second Cambridge CamRuSS Russian Fair!
Last year the fair was a great success. There were 45 stalls and more than 400 visitors, who came not only from Cambridge and the surrounding area, but also from more remote towns and cities. Even though it was a Russian fair at heart, it had a truly international flavour as it was visited by people speaking a variety of different languages.
This year, the Russian Fair will be held at the same place as before – Arbury Community Centrе, Campkin Road, Cambridge CB4 2LD.
Timing: for visitors – from 12 noon till 3pm;
for vendors – stall set-up from 11am, clearing at 4pm.
