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 in 2020 there will be different arrangements – see our news pages).

A very popular event which brings 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 Committee have taken the difficult decision not to have our usual annual show on Lemon Quay this year. Instead, of the show, the Society will pursue a prime stock sale at Truro Market on Wednesday 2nd December by kind permission of Lodge and Thomas. In making this decision, the Committee feel it is important for it to try and support the local Christmas prime stock trade.

It is intended that there would be a limited number of classes, restricted to only Cornish entries. Cattle will be judged in the pens but not shown. We intend to have sheep classes on the same basis too. The sale obviously depends on exhibitors being willing to bring their stock forward, and circumstances permitting the sale to take place. Obviously there will be no domestic sections or produce sections. We will write to past livestock exhibitors shortly with more information and to gauge levels of interest. The sale will be a closed event with no public participation but we will aim to record it for the web site, together with the judges' explanation.

Separately to the sale at the market, the Committee will continue to work with the City Council, Cornwall Council and the BID to explore the possibility of an exhibition and/or craft fair on Lemon Quay, and we will provide more information as soon as we can.

We will hold a mini AGM via zoom on 10th Sept at 7pm, to replace our normal AGM which was postponed in April. If you wish to comment or take part please email truroprimestockshow@outlook.com
