Southern Show attendance totted up

Islanders flock to agricultural showcase

It's been confirmed more than 12,500 people attended this year's Southern District Agricultural Show.

Organisers say the most accurate attendance figure they have is 12,860.

That's thought to be lower than the true number of Islanders who went through the gates at Great Meadow over the weekend, though - as kids got in for free on the Sunday.

The first Southern show took place at the Billown Mansion more than a hundred years ago (1914).
