St German’s Priory Christmas Fair

November 17, 2016 - November 19, 2016

Come and immerse yourself in the festive spirit within this beautiful, atmospheric and historic building. St Germans Priory, adjacent to Port Eliot is the finest, oldest historic church in Cornwall. Once a cathedral and part of the Pilgrims’ Way, it remains at the heart of the community. The Christmas Market is a chance to buy some unique local arts and crafts for the discerning friend or family. A huge variety of stalls and home made refreshments will be available.

Thursday 17th 6.30pm to 9 pm
During this evening of atmospheric shopping there will be live music from local musicians and the Reflections Choir – alongside our initiation of Christmas with traditional mince pies and mulled wine. The event will be opened by our very own acclaimed musician and composer Paul Joyce. In addition the completed DVD ‘Voices of St Germans’, an initiative by Paul and Diana Laugharne, will be available to view, listen to and buy during the event (money raised from sales will go to the St Germans Community Shop).
