From 2015Following on from the past 8 years, the Club enters into it's 9th year of the show in which we have seen the Lions Classic Car eventViews from 2012 event grow in the number of entries, totalling 60 plus.  We are hoping for another real summer, which will give both visitors and  owners at least ONE  dry and sunny day to lift the roofs off of their cars - let's hope for a warm and sunny July day for this years event.

From 2014 show

It is also a great day out for the whole family with lots of stalls, including the LIONS BBQ stand, the Lions Ladies produce stall, Crockery smashing etc. This year we also hope to have Lion Trevor with Bertie Bus in attendance, "taking you for a ride" for a small cost.

History of Honiton Market

There has been a market recorded in Honiton since before the reign of King John (1199-1216) however the Royal Charter, granting the rights for a weekly market, were bestowed to the town in 1257, by Henry III.

In addition to the Tuesday and Thursday, Saturday's market was originally held on a Sunday and only later changed to as we know it today.

For centuries Honiton market was primarily for the sale of livestock and farm produce at its height being one of the busiest and most well known markets in Christendom!  So famous in fact that it has even been mentioned in popular literature for Horace Smith's character 'Lady Crockatt' was so refined she would buy "no fish except out of Honiton market"!
