History of the Show

Run entirely by volunteers,this amazing Exhibition was started in 1967 by the late Dr David Jefferson Brewer who had seen the high quality paintings and crafts being created in local homes, and had the vision to use them to raise funds for what was then, the British Empire Cancer Campaign Committee.
This first Exhibition was held in the Parish Rooms with items on display only and raised £200.
The Exhibition moved on to the W I Hall and then to the newly opened Cape Cornwall School.
As time has gone on the Exhibition has expanded and now uses 3 halls in the school, has approx 400 Exhibitors each year making it one of the largest Art and Craft Exhibitions in the south west of the UK.
