Welcome to Huntingdon

The birth place of Oliver Cromwell

Huntingdon is an important bridge-head where the A1, the Great North Road, crosses the River Great Ouse near to Hinchingbrooke House once home to both the Cromwell's and then the Montagu's, The Earls of Sandwich, where in 1660 Samuel Pepys was secretary to Edward Montagu, so Huntingdon was no stranger to politics when John Major became the youngest Prime Minister of the 20th Century.

If you are organising a public Christmas or New Year event in Huntingdonshire then once you have finalised the details don't forget to send us an email with the dates, times, details and ticket prices (if relevant) so that we can put it into the events diary and let LOADS of people see it. The earlier you do this the more people will get the chance to find our what you are doing.

If you are planning to have a SPECIAL ONE-OFF XMAS LATE NIGHT OPENING EVENT then let's have details of these too. You know what we mean a proper festive spirit type thing, warm mince pies, fancy dressed elves (I mean staff) and perhaps treats for the kids. Last year the St Ives Co-op staff dressed up as Polar Bears and Reindeer, it was hilarious!

Of course if you are a member you can put this stuff in yourself but you can email it to us and we'll do it for you too.
