Callington Honey Fair – Wednesday 2nd October 2019

Following the success of last year’s family friendly Honey Fair Callington Lions are extending the same theme for this year.

Traditionally, Callington’s annual Honey Fair has something for everyone with the Streets filled with a variety of stalls displaying local and national produce.

In addition, this year there will be family entertainment including clowns, animals to pet, face painting, live music on a bigger stage and much, much more.

Also new this year hopefully will be:

Children’s pasty making – Free!   (kindly sponsored by Helluva Pasties)

It will be extended into the evening with street entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including Rowland’s Fun Fair.

This is ‘Bee-sides’ the favourites of the Cornwall Bee Keepers displays, with their live bees and honey products, ‘Teas with the Bees’ and Children’s Art Competition. Don’t forget you can follow the trail of the Honey Fair Shop window displays, where the theme this year is ‘Vintage’.

Festive Light Repairs

Fore Street will be partially closed in August on Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th for essential repairs to the festive lights in the Town.   Access will be for buses and emergency vehicles.

Why these repairs you may ask?  The electrics for the Christmas lights have been causing some problems for a few years, in fact, last year they flickered on and off whenever there was any wind.  Those of you with long memories will know that some of these electrics are thirty years old!

Callington Town Council now has the funds to repair the electrics and these repairs will take place on the dates above.  A ‘rolling’ road closure will be put in place so that only part of the road will be closed at any one time. The Town Council has employed a professional company to handle the road closure ensuring that everything is kept legal and safe.

Our local electricians will be using a hydraulic platform and will be carrying out the works one section at a time.   If you have any queries or question please contact the Town Council office on 01579 384039.  Thank you for your co-operation.




The Public Consultation due to be held in the Committee Room, Town Hall from Tuesday 6th August to Friday 20th September has had to be rescheduled. Once dates have been finalised we will announce them on our website, social media pages and in the Callington News,

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Callington Town Market

The second Market is being held in the Pannier Market, Callington on Sunday 4th August from 10.00am – 3.00pm.

There are over 30 traders, all under cover, with some that attended last month and some new for this month.   Refreshments will be available to eat in or take away.

The weather is going to be fine so come and visit, have a browse and enjoy the market atmosphere.  Perhaps event get ahead and buy some Christmas presents!

Parking is FREE in all car parks!

We look forward to seeing you.
