Musical Opportunities

Each year we aim to have at least one local, young performer showcasing their talents on our main stage.

2018 - Threemilstone School Choir

2017 - Newquay Treviglas School's steel band 'The Steelers' And local singer-singwriter, Daisy Clarke


Children take great pride in seeing their work on display and we have a range of classes in our Horticulture and Arts, Crafts and Cookery Sections which are open to all schools and young people. Many classes can be tailored for your school.

We also aim to promote young people in our rural community with young handler classes in the Sheep and Cattle Section and junior rider classes in the Horse Section. There is even a photography show in the Cavy Section for you to take pictures with your guinea pigs and a class for selfies!
