The two days will provide a wonderful opportunity to get ahead with some early Christmas shopping, to buy next seasons clothes, choose fabulous jewellery and find useful products for the house and home from a diverse and interesting range of exhibitors. We welcome lots of new exciting businesses and look forward to the return of faithful Cornish regulars and those from further afield.

In the Garden Room with a beautiful view over the park and lake, visitors will be able to find delicious light lunches of Cornish baked potatoes with a tempting variety of fillings, cheese croissants, smoked salmon bagels, morning coffee or a Cornish cream tea.
