On Air Night Flight | Midnight - 5:00am

Show field ready for the big day

There are high hopes this year's Royal Manx Agricultural Show, which opens tomorrow, will be one to remember.

It's the 150th anniversary of the event and organisers are putting on one of the most varied programmes ever, following last year's cancellation due to the foot and mouth outbreak in the United Kingdom.

Around 130 marquees, tents and stands have set up on the showground in Sulby and exhibitors have been moving in throughout the day.

Show Director for the Royal Manx Agricultural Society John Quayle says the logisitics of fitting everyone in are quite tricky (audio file attached):
