Trereife Christmas Fair
Trereife Christmas Fair
The historic Queen Anne manor house and its spectacular grounds is sure to prove an atmospheric venue for visitors to soak up a heady dose of festive spirit, while picking up some unique Cornish gifts.
The weekend events begin on the evening of Friday 21ST November with the park and house lit by the Newlyn Harbour lights creating a magical atmosphere, whilst local school choirs, singer songwriters and a traditional brass band provide the entertainment. The night is set to offer a fantastic evening shopping atmosphere with local food produce, designer crafts and working craft demonstrations.
Inside the house, the Le Grice family will be offering free access to some of their historic rooms, where visitors can listen to stories by Trevor Lawrence about the fascinating history of the local area.
The evening culminates in a magical lantern parade by local school children followed by choirs and fundraising activities.
Throughout the weekend the Craft Fair will take place all under cover in heated marquees where visitors can browse a range of unique art and craft that cannot be found on the high street. A selection of local suppliers will be on hand to tickle your taste buds, making it the perfect opportunity to stock up on an array of fine foods and drinks for the festive season. Trereife’s Courtyard Cafe will also be serving a selection of homemade refreshments.
Should you fancy a diversion from the Christmas gift buying and nibbles, Tim Le Grice will be conducting tours of his historic home, allowing visitors to absorb Trereife’s extensive history while supping on a glass of mulled wine.
Entertainment across the weekend includes a programme of live music from Brass Bands, School Choirs and singer-songwriters. A free Christmas craft workshop will ensure there’s plenty to occupy younger visitors including a traditional fairground carousel and storytelling.
Complete with Blacksmithing and basket making workshops and the great smells of seasonal food, the event is set to be a joy for the senses for both the young and young at heart.
