Celebrating its twelfth year, Truro Victorian Christmas Market will be back on Lemon Quay Piazza – the heart of the city – where tens of thousands of people are expected to flock to this festive six day event.
More than fifty of the region’s top traders will once again be setting up their stalls and offering their season’s greetings, inviting everyone to come and sample their wares with a vast array of Christmas gifts and treats on offer. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to talk to the West Country’s leading producers and artisans about their produce.
The event will be held under the canvas of a heated marquee, and will be divided into two zones. The Food Hall is where you’ll find a mouth-watering selection of sweet and savoury treats; from meats and cheese to chocolate and preserves. Plus, they’ll be plenty of opportunity to buy something to help wash it all down, with a tempting display of liqueurs and ales. The Arts, Crafts and Gifts Hall is full of artwork, jewelry, pottery, books, clothes and much, much more.
Once again it will be the duty of the Mayor of Truro to judge the best dressed trader and best decorated stall, so you can expect to see some fantastic costumes and plenty of sparkle. They’ll also be traditional carol singing, and this year, the marquee welcomes music star, Eva Barnsley, who will be performing live.
Inside the marquee there is a large café in case you need to take the weight of your feet. Wednesdays are the days for late night Christmas shopping in Truro, and the marquee will be staying open until 9pm on Wednesday 14th December.
