Mullion is set to host its 80th horticultural show as it celebrates eight decades since its inception.

Organised by the Mullion Horticultural Society, formed in 1931, the event on July 10 promises a day filled with horticulture, home produce and arts and crafts.

Devoted to promoting these sectors in the community, the annual show is regarded as a village highlight.

This year, the Society aims to make it a memorable occasion with hopes of record entrants and entries.

The show will run from 2.30pm to 5pm at the Mullion Cricket Club.

Attendees are invited to browse the list of entries on the Society’s Facebook page or their website.

Schedules can also be collected from the local Co-op or the noticeboard by the Spar.

The categories for the show have been inspired by noteworthy events: 200 years of the RNLI, and the Paris Olympics.

These themes will be reflected in the Floral Art, Home Produce, Handicrafts and Junior Sections.

Everyone is encouraged to partake, however, forms must be submitted by noon on July 8 to Mrs Beryl Cullen at Bihan Ker, Nansmellyon Road, TR12 7EE.

For junior classes, participation is free, while other classes require a 10p entry fee.

No late entries will be accepted on the day.

Keeping show attendees refreshed, beverages will be available in the pavilion, and raffle tickets can be purchased in the marquee.

The Garden Safari, held on June 30, and the Cornish Evening, scheduled for July 11, are annual events organised to raise funds in support of the Show.

The Cornish Evening, featuring performances by the St Keverne Band and the Tonkin family playing Celtic music takes place in the Marquee at the Cricket Club at 7pm.

Refreshments include pasties and saffron buns, with an entry fee of £6.

These annual occasions add more colour to the celebrations, while also underlining the Society’s efforts to further horticulture, home produce, arts, and crafts in Mullion.
