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.

Truro Christmas Primestock and Produce Show
Truro Christmas Primestock Show 2022The management committee of the Truro Christmas Primestock and Produce Society are pleased to announce that, on Wednesday 7th December, the committee, with the support of Lodge and Thomas, will coordinate the Primestock Show at the Truro Cattle Market. The Society are delighted to resume the domestic section. Tanya Thomas, who farms near Tresillian is the Show Chairman, having been Secretary of the show for the past 10 years, said “After two years hosting only livestock, the Committee are delighted to go back to having a full Primestock Show, with cattle, sheep, farm produce including commercial vegetables, domestic and even sloe gin!”The show has like all events, suffered from Covid cancellations. For the previous two years the show has been for cattle and sheep only, one of the only shows to continue. The show organisers now feel the time is right to once again coordinate a full show, and welcome members of the public to see the best Cornish farming can produce.Show President Armorel Carlyon said “This show allows exhibitors to show their fabulous cattle and sheep and give the opportunity to local butchers to purchase prize winning animals so their customers may purchase the best of Cornish beef and lamb in time for Christmas”.The show committee are in talks to bring the show back to Truro City Centre for 2023, but feel that a full show in 2022 at the Truro Cattle market is more of an exciting option than a partial show on Lemon Quay.Look out for the show schedule of all classes during mid-September. #truroprimestockshow #truro #truroprimestock #trurocattlemarket #cornishagriculture #whatsonincornwall #whatsonincornwall2022 #december2022 #showday ...
