Honiton Charter Day celebrates the town’s Royal Charter
Honiton Charter Day will be celebrated this year on Saturday, July 21.
Following last year much slimmed-down event due to bad weather, organisers will be looking to make this year’s occasion a huge success.
A market was first recorded in the town before the reign of King John (1199-1216) but it was bestowed a Royal Charter in 1257, by Henry III and it is this that has been celebrated in Honiton since 2007, with this year marking the 761st anniversary.
Honiton Charter Day Committee is made up primarily of representatives of Honiton Town Council, Honiton Lions, Honiton Chamber of Commerce as well as members of the general public.

Among this year’s attractions will be charity stalls in High Street and at Allhallows, a fun dog show, a display of classic cars, organised by Honiton Lions Club and musical entertainment suitable for the occasion.
