Truro Christmas Street Markets 2017


The very popular Truro Christmas Street Markets in Boscawen Street have been organised by Deborah Martyn Events on behalf of Totally Truro under the Truro BIDS scheme for the last ten years. 

The BIDS scheme is now up for a five year renewal in the early part of summer 2017. Until the result of the vote by Truro businesses is known, we are not in a position to take bookings for the 2017 street markets.

If the BIDS scheme is not renewed then it seems unlikely to us that there will be any funding available for Christmas Street Markets.

We should have further information once the BIDS vote result is known in July and will update the website accordingly.


The Mayor of Truro Charity Day.

Saturday 9th December (tbc).

DME will be organising this popular annual event again in 2017. Aussie Marquees are, as in previous years, kindly donating the use of the marquee for up to 30 charities to raise funds and awareness of their causes.

Any charities interested in taking part in this free event should contact the Mayor's PA, Rachael Rowe, at for details as to how to apply.

The Mayor of Truro for 2017 will be hosting this event on Lemon Quay.

About us is operated by Deborah Martyn Events Limited, a company that has been running markets, food fairs, arts & craft shows and exhibitions since Christmas 2003. 


We are a family run business and work closely with our partners at Totally Truro, Truro City Council, Aussie Marquees and Event Power SW to deliver good quality events that people want to visit time and time again.

About our exhibitors

Deborah Martyn Events Limited has garnered a reputation for quality events with quality products. This has been achieved by vetting everyone who wants to trade at our events. Food producers, artists, craftspeople and other prospective traders and producers all have to submit samples of their products to us so that we can assess that they meet the levels of quality and value that we demand.


Once allowed to participate in our markets, traders and producers are subject to continual assessment, both for their product range and for their attitude and dealings with the public. Anyone who does not meet our high standards of customer service is removed from our "Approved Trader" list. Therefore, visitors to our markets can be assured of both good quality products and a friendly smile!

Do you want to become an exhibitor at the Christmas markets?

Although the 2017 event is "by invitation only" Deborah Martyn Events Limited is always on the lookout for good quality artists, photographers, craftspeople and food producers who share our vision of providing quality products at reasonable prices. Our vendors have all passed rigorous quality controls and are regularly subjected to spot inspections, and only the best are accepted. If you want to get involved as an exhibitor you can email us and tell us why you think your product is good enough for this event. We will need references!
