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 and is a favourite and is now an established part of the city centre Christmas events season (nb we are still having to make special arrangements in 2021 due to COVID – see our news pages).

A very popular event which has traditionally brought the countryside and farming right into the heart of the City and it is believed to be the only Primestock Show in Britain to be held in the centre of a city, making the Truro Show a unique event.

Visitors are 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 is always 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.

In 2018 we were delighted that HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO was our President.

The 2021 Show will be held on 1st December. However, due to the ongoing situation things will still be different to usual. The City Council are unable to have the usual marquee on Lemon Quay, and it is not economic or practical for us to hire our own just for a few days. However, we will be able to have a small domestic display and show of farm crops. Unfortunately, there will not be a domestic section this year. It is hoped that the judging and sale of livestock will be held at Truro Livestock Market. There will also be a carcass class judged at RJ Trevarthen. Further details, schedules and entry forms for the commercial crops, livestock and carcasses will be published on the website in mid September. ... See MoreSee Less
