Golden Age

Our next fair

Our next Golden Age Fair date is to be confirmed. 

About our fairs

Our Golden Age fairs are designed for older people and their family, carers and friends. However, everyone is welcome. 

We hold four fairs a year in different villages and towns across Fenland. Fairs are usually held in the local village hall or community centre. 

Our fairs aim to give information, advice and guidance that people may not have been aware of, or known how to access. 

Entry is free. We also offer free drinks, cakes and biscuits throughout the event. Everyone who attends is given a free canvass shopping bag and pen.

There are over 50 partners who work with the Golden Age team, with around 20 attending each fair.

Get financial help

Are you claiming all the benefits you're entitled to? Why not let our 'Fenland Ferret' check if you can get more support?

The Fenland Ferret is a computer programme that ferrets out unclaimed benefits. Since our Golden Age fairs began in 2003, our Fenland Ferret has found over £800,000 in unclaimed benefits for older people in Fenland.

These benefits have made a huge difference to many people, but would have remained unclaimed had they not attended the fair. 

A skilled customer advisor is on hand at our fairs to offer free and confidential advice. The process is quick and easy. 

If you don't want to wait until the next fair, you can request a callback to start the process over the phone
