What to see
Liskeard Show has always had a wide selection of high quality entries in the large animal classes. You can also see small animals, a companion dog show, donkeys, poultry, fruit, vegetables and flowers.
Main ring attractions include galloping acrobatics, a clown show, the Arrow Barrow display team, vintage tractor display, a donkey derby, Mell Brooks’ gundog display, and the Vander Brothers Duo Wheel.
The show site is clearly signposted from the A390, the Liskeard to Callington Road. There are numerous displays; special events; competitions; entertainments; trade stands; fairground attractions and side shows.
Marquees are provided for teas; bars; crafts; stalls and for smaller animals and poultry.
There is plenty of car parking, and lots of places to picnic or buy lunch and snacks.
Only two weeks to go until we see you all at Royal Cornwall Show! The showground up at Wadebridge is always a fun and busy weekend, but if you were wondering how on earth you are going to find Truro Tractors in among all the other exhibitors, well… here is a hand map:
This year, Truro Tractors will be located on stand number 436 – pretty much in the same area as last year – and easily identified by the flashing “TT”.
This year the show dates are from Thursday the 9th of June, until Saturday the 11th. Previous shows have been a bit windy, or extremely rainy… check out the weather forecast for 2016.
We’re not making this up! Sunshine, temperatures of 14ºC, and just a light breeze. You can confirm this information for yourself.
Truro Tractor is bringing more machines than ever.
The Bomford Flailbot is a remotely operated track mower for challenging terrain, and Truro Tractors will be bringing it to Royal Cornwall too.
As well as these exciting new machines, Truro Tractors will be exhibiting a range of Honda quad bikes; New Holland tractors from the Boomer up to the T7.200 and Heavy Duty models, inlcuding the Blue Power line; a New Holland LM635 telehandler; more mowers from Lely and Bomford… the list goes on! And we haven’t even mentioned the ride-on mowers, chainsaws and other horticultural machinery that will be on show.
