The Truro Christmas Primestock Show is held in a marquee on Lemon Quay in Truro on the first Wednesday in December every year. 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.
The video above is a short extract from the action in the marque in the auction ring selling the prize winning sheep.
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.
You can read more about the show and auction on the Truro Primestock show website.
