Toys, cakes and real ales are just some of the goods which will be available at this year’s Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair in Truro.

This impressive selection of Cornish crafts and food will be on display in Truro next week when the Piazza plays host to the annual Christmas Made in Cornwall fair.

Liz Rickard, from the Made in Cornwall Scheme, said: “If you’re having problems organising Christmas and are looking for something that little bit different for your friends and family, then look no further than the Made in Cornwall Christmas Fair.

“There is inspiration at the fair to suit all pockets, from £3 girl’s hair slides and lip balms for just £2, to a beautiful personalised silver and gold cuff bangle for that special someone at £150.  The only trouble you might have is choosing from the wonderful selection of goodies on offer.”

The popular Christmas Fair offers the chance for members of the public to buy genuine Cornish gifts and food for Christmas.  There will be 80 quality local businesses, from as far afield as Callington and Liskeard to The Lizard, exhibiting at the highly acclaimed annual fair.

Amongst these will be Sara from Inkywool at Hayle, an artist who creates unique 3D pictures from hand painted butterflies, Penny from Cotton Cottage based in Coverack with her Pop-on Pony, a dress-up hobby horse which children love, and Cornwall Food and Drink with their Great Cornish Food recipe book,

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council cabinet member for homes and communities, said: “This will I am sure be a fantastic event which really showcases the wealth of talent that we have in Cornwall and also allows the community to support Cornwall by buying locally.”

The Fair will be open from 10.00am to 9.00pm on Wednesday, November 27, to incorporate the late night shopping evening, from 10.00am to 5.00pm from Thursday through to Saturday, and from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday, December 1. Admission is free.
