Organised by antiques dealer Cambs Lock and BID Huntingdon, the event, which is now in its third year, took place at the Commemoration Hall, on Saturday, with visitors able to get their hands on a range of collectables, antiques or personalised goodies.

Cambs Lock manager, Paula De’Ath, told The Hunts Post: “We like to give everyone a chance to have a table as we like to keep it similar to what we have on display at Cambs Lock – a lot of everything.

“This year there was real variety to chose from, something for everyone.”
