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.

Jocelyn Snelson

This year's Exhibition is dedicated to the memory of JOCELYN SNELSON,who very sadly passed away in February this year.
As a teacher at the Cape Cornwall School she agreed to coordinate the Exhibition for 1 year in the 1970's and ended up doing so for over 40 years!
She made many friends during this time and her hard work and dedication were recognised by Cancer Research UK in 2013 when she was presented with a Flame of Hope Honorary Fellowship.
She was also the President of the St. Just and District Cancer Research UK Fundraising Group and will be very much missed.
