This years Victorian Christmas Market, will take place from 8th-13th December. The market, now in it’s eleventh year, is the highlight of the Christmas activities in Truro. With almost 70 traders, producers and exhibitors, the market, which is held at Lemon Quay Piazza in the city centre, runs for six consecutive days.
Unlike traditional Christmas markets which are usually held in huts, the Truro Victorian Christmas Market is housed in a huge heated marquee. Thousands of visitors will visit the event in search of unique and handmade Christmas gifts.
The marquee is split into two distinct zones; the Food Hall with meat, cheese, chocolates, preserves, liqueurs, ales etc (basically, everything you could want food wise over Christmas), and the Arts, Crafts and Gifts Hall which has clothing, jewellery, artwork, pottery, books and much more for your present buying delight. The majority of traders make their products themselves.
Late night shopping in Truro starts on Wednesday 25th November and is on every Wednesday until 23rd December, until 9.00pm.
On Wednesday 23rd December from 5 – 9pm, Boscawen Street will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland with real snow falling! With fun for the whole family to enjoy, there will be a snowball throwing area! For all you Frozen fans, Olaf and Elsa will be there to meet whilst local choirs will be singing a medley of Christmas Carols.
