MayFest 2024

Please put Saturday 11th May in your diaries and make sure you get along to this year’s Callington MayFest! We’re certain you won’t regret it. With two town centre stages and four indoor venues at our disposal there’s plenty of choice for all tastes across the generations.

For family entertainment head for the Methodist Church field where there’ll be a variety of experiences – from Horse Riding displays to life in Viking times; from Forest School to Circus Skills; from listening to or joining in with a Junk Band experience.

The Artisan Market will be bigger and better than ever – and now is the chance to have a go at Flamenco or Belly Dancing. There’ll be Live Theatre in the Town Hall and a new Virtual Reality experience in the Council Chamber.

There will be the annual MayFest procession at 12.30 when new GIANTS will be appearing.

If that’s not enough, there’ll be non-stop live music on the New Road stage and the Samworth Stage in Fore Street. We look forward to seeing you there!

The full programme is available at:
