Truro’s Annual Christmas Primestock Show is normally held in a marquee on Lemon Quay in the City Centre on the first Wednesday in December.  It has been an established part of the city centre Christmas events season for a long time but as with many events, we continue to have to make special arrangements this year (2021).  As such we will have a small farm crops competition and various displays on Lemon Quay, but the actual livestock classes will be held at Truro Market.  The schedules and entries forms can be accessed by clicking here.

The Show has traditionally been a very popular event which brought the countryside and farming right into the heart of the City. It is believed to be the only Primestock Show in Britain to (normally) be held in the centre of a city.

Visitors are (normally) able to see at close hand the very best of Cornwall’s prime cattle and sheep exhibited , judged and then auctioned, as well as being able to admire a wonderful show of farm produce, cookery, preserves, floral art, photography, crafts and a host of other exhibits. There has always been a wonderful atmosphere in the marquee which provides a unique opportunity to see show cattle and sheep literally within a few yards of many of Truro’s major shops and stores.  Although 2021 continues to mean things are a little different we hope to return to normal in 2022.

A highpoint of the Show’s recent history was in 2018 when we were delighted that HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO was our President.
