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 (2022), and will be holding the Show at Truro Cattle Market rather than on Lemon Quay. The schedules and entries forms will be available from the web site in mid September but we can confirm that we will, once again, have classes covering cattle, sheep, farm produce including commercial vegetables, and domestic.
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 2022 continues to mean things are a little different this year, we continue to explore how to return to the City Centre in the future.
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.
