Oxbow and Peach Vintage Pop Up, Whittlesford, Cambridgeshire, Thurs 25 May – Sat 27 May
This little showroom in the Old School House in the pretty village of Whittlesford has an eclectic mix of vintage and antique finds. It’s not open all the time but Lizzie and Georgie run pop ups through March, April, May and June and then later on in the year. I went to their last one a few weeks ago and picked up pretty china bowls and cups planted with primroses, strawberry plants and seasonal flowers. There’s vintage china, glistening glass, furniture, lights, mirrors, objet d’art, jewellery, art, linens, quirky finds and so much more. Top tip – make a day of it and enjoy lunch at The Tickle Arms in the village.

This air show is certainly up there as one of the main events in the country, in particular if you’re interested in WW2 aircraft and warbirds. There’s an extensive museum that’s free to look around during an Airshow and includes many WWII examples. It’s not all the golden oldies, the French Rafale Solo Display Team will be showing off some moves and there are loads of activities for children to get involved in – children under 16 go free too. Duxford airfield itself is an historic site dating back to 1918. During the Second World War it was home to the first operational Spitfire squadron where fighter pilots were frequently scrambled against the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain.
