Trewithen Country and Classics 2016

Volunteers to host a great day out for Marie Curie

Country & Classics Show 2016

Volunteers from all over Cornwall are hosting their annual Trewithen Classic Cars and Country Fayre (Country & Classics Show) at Trewithen Gardens, Probus on Sunday 11 September.  This will be the 4th year, thanks to the support of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Galsworthy and family, that Marie Curie volunteers have hosted a great day out.

There will be many attractions including over 100 classic vehicles with displays of new luxury cars from local dealerships.  Each year more classic cars have attended and put on a wonderful display and volunteer Larry Datson is expecting another great show this year, ‘we are calling out to all classic car owners to attend Trewithen and make this event for Marie Curie the best to date.’

Country & Classics Show: Blue Morris Pick Up

Visitors will also have the opportunity to stroll through the beautiful gardens during the day and be entertained by St Dennis Youth Band and he Roseland Community Choir.

Some of Cornwall’s best local talent will be on show on the craft stalls and there will be a diverse selection of delicious food available to enjoy. There will be a return of the local Police Dog Handling team followed by the Fun Dog Show, with an opportunity to try out field archery.

What’s new?

New this year at Trewithen will be an antique valuation session courtesy of well known local auctioneer Philip Buddell and visitors are invited to bring along their car memorabilia.  Another exciting new activity will be the introduction of a Gardeners Question Time hosted by Gary Long, head gardener at Trewithen, with a panel of fellow experienced horticulturists.  Entry is just £5 per person (under 16s free).   Keep up to date with the programme for the Country & Classics Show at

Every £20 raised will provide an hour of nursing care.  Every hour of every day the charity is making a real difference to the lives of people with a terminal illness and their families across Cornwall with this totally free of charge service.

There is still time to enter your classic vehicle for this event and there are limited spaces available for craft or food stalls.  Please call the Truro office on 01872 260500 or email
