Scrolling through the Honiton Twitter feed recently I can see that there is a lot going on from the ladies golf team celebrating to the upcoming artificial grass demonstration at MKM Honiton on the 21st there is something for everyone. But today I am going to focus on the Honiton spring fair taking place on the 22nd April.
The fair will be held in the Thelma Hulbert Gallery gardens and the Toast Café, with a selection of artisans and crafty folk (that is people skilled in craft, rather than the artful dodger and his crew). The fairs organisers hope to create the feel of a ‘vibrant flea market’ and visitors can expect to see independent stalls selling textiles, jewellery, glasswork and more. In addition the afternoon will feature a family show from the Exeter Paddleboat Theatre Company – not to be missed this will include mime, puppetry and music suitable for the whole family.
Festivities begin at 10am and aim to run up until 5pm so there is plenty of time for a leisurely stroll to take in the gardens, the gallery and the ambience; and possibly come home with some interesting and unique souvenirs.
Held on Saturday 22nd July, this year's Honiton Charter Day looks to be an event suitable for all ages with stalls on Northcote Lane and Allhallows Playing field, a Classic Car Show and various types of entertainment on the High Street including a dog show and Honiton Twirlstars.
An annual celebration to mark the anniversary of the granting of the Honiton Market Charter,, Charter Day is an opportunity for local organizations to promote their selves and local charities to raise funds.This years events commemorates 760 years since the Charter was granted to the town and there will be music and entertainment and a very busy and fun packed day is anticipated for all to enjoy.
With stalls available on Allhallows Playing Field and at Northcote Lane why not take part in the Honiton Charter Day.
With a fee of £5.00 for a stall, this year's theme is 'Markets through the ages'. By no means compulsory, everyone is encourages to dress up in any period clothing between 1257, the year the Market Charter was granted, and the present day. There are prizes to be won for the most original/best costumes so why not join in the fun!
