Godolphin Village Fete

It is with great sadness that this years Godolphin Village Fete has had to be cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The National Trust has informed us that they are not holding any events up to the end of August, our contingency date was going to be in August, we have considered September but in these uncertain times no one is sure whether even this would be possible. So we are now already looking forward to the Fete in 2021. We hope you understand the reasons for making this tough decision. Please stay safe.


A traditional summer Fete set in the beautiful setting of Godolphin

Godolphin Fete is a good old-fashioned village fete, set in the ancient and atmospheric estate of Godolphin with a medieval garden and historic house, between Penzance and Helston. With a wide variety of stalls and fun and games for the whole family; as well as a barbecue, beer and entertainment all day.

The fete attracts support from the wider community. The day is packed full of fun, including smash a plate, a bouncy castle and craft stalls selling a variety of local produce such as knitwear, soaps, jewellery, photography and artwork. Refreshments were also available throughout the day, with the beauty of the area also free to roam.

In recent years a dog show is included which was very popular with classes such as "waggiest tail" and "loveliest lady" which saw many four-legged-friends taking part.

We have a variety of entertainment available during the event in the past has included St Aubyns Singers, Crossed Four and Godolphin School Choir.

There is a brilliant atmosphere throughout the day, with one stall holder saying it was "one of their favourite community events” and another saying: “It was a really fabulous event, everyone was so helpful and smiley."
