Oct 1st. Callington Honey Fair, The Callington Honey Fair is steeped in history. It was granted a charter in 1267 by King Henry III, as a means of raising funds for the rebuilding of Westminster Abbey but did not become established until the 19th century. The charter gave Callington permission for a weekly market and an annual fair. The tradition of an annual fair was resumed in 1978 and taken over by The Lions Club of Callington in 1979. Thousands of people flock to this unique event on the first Wednesday in October each year. Honey Fair brings a wide range of street traders, entertainers and exhibitors to Callington. Parking is available at the Saltash Road car park and, weather permitting, the Saltash Road Recreation Field. 2008 will be the 30th anniversary of the Honey Fair in its present form. The theme for this event is 'Anniversaries and Celebrations'. Attractions include many street and charity stalls, a shop window competition, based on the current theme and a visiting Fun Fair. Honey products are on sale throughout the day and there is a honey product competition. Local children participate in a poster competition, also based on the annual theme. Callington Town Crier together with visiting Town Criers, add to the historic atmosphere of the day. A wide range of refreshments can be bought throughout the day. All enquiries about honey fair can be directed to Callington Lion David Jones on 07875 075 755
