The next Mac's Golden Age event will be announced soon.

About our fairs

Mac's Golden Age events are coordinated and enabled by Fenland District Council, with support from partners, and were launched in 2003 by the late Cllr Mac Cotterell MBE.

The fairs are for people aged over 60 and those interested in services and support for over 60s, such as family members, carers and friends.  

We hold fairs in different villages and towns across Fenland. Fairs are usually held in village halls and community centres. 

The fairs provide 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 and refreshments throughout the event. Everyone who attends is given a free canvas shopping bag with relevant goodies inside.

There are around 80 partners who work with the Golden Age team, with around 25-30 attending each fair.

For more information, please email goldenage@fenland.gov.uk or call 01354 654321.

Get financial help

Our fairs aim to help residents claim all the benefits they are entitled to.

If you need assistance before our next fair takes place, there are a number of partner organisations that can help.
