Thousands expected at Southern Agricultural Show

Drivers urged to be patient

Saturday is the first day of the annual Southern Agricultural Show, with thousands of people expected to attend.

Farmers from around the Island are heading to the Great Meadow in Castletown to show off their animals.

The highlight of that part of the show is the crowning of the Supreme Champion.

There'll also be stalls and exhibits displaying some of the locally produced food as well as a farmer's market.

Organisers say if you're not heading to the show you may want to avoid the area to reduce traffic.
