Cape Cornwall Art & Craft Exhibition 2020

We are very sorry to say that the 2020 Art & Crafts Exhibition has been cancelled due to the ongoing Corvid-19 pandemic.

However in our continued support of Cancer Research UK we have set up a smaller online version of the exhibition which you can see by going to where you can purchase items directly through the individual sellers.

We also have other events happening which are publicized on our Facebook page: St Just & District Cancer Research UK Local Committee or you can go to our super team page at

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at the 2021 Art & Crafts Exhibition.

Thank You

Sadly you cannot visit the show this year so why not have a look at the online shop and see all the beautiful locally made crafts and paintings displayed there. We will be back next year.

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.
