Cornwall Christmas Fair

10 Nov 2021 to 11 Nov 2021
Eden Project
Eden Project
St Austell

For two days in November the Eden Link Building, between the two Biomes, will play host to a glorious array of Christmas gifts, home accessories, ethical fashion, beachwear, jewellery and skincare, and a diverse and delectable range of artisan food and drink produce in the Ginsters Food Hall. Significantly, the stallholders - some of whom will be making their first appearance in Cornwall- donate 15% of all takings to Cornwall Community Foundation. 

Thanks to generous sponsorship from South West Water, the iconic Eden biomes will be turned blue for 2021 for the duration of the Fair.  This is both to mark the Fair’s support for Cornwall’s communities and to thank Cornwall’s blue light services for their commitment and sacrifice over the last eighteen months.

“The Cornwall Community Foundation was right at the forefront in supporting vulnerable Cornish communities when COVID-19 hit and we are delighted to be adding our support as the vital re-building work begins in our communities,” explains Christmas Fair Co-Chair Kate Holborow. “This Fair is organised by a brilliant team of volunteers and owing to the support of generous sponsors, we ensure that all funds raised go straight to support our struggling Cornish communities.”

Visitors to the Fair can pop along to the Information Desk, sponsored by Carlyon Beach, to discover the full line-up on offer which includes…
