The president of the Royal Manx Agricultural Show has confirmed this year will now run as a one-day event.

Fiona Moore spoke to 3FM this afternoon after todays schedule was cancelled this morning for health and safety reasons due to poor weather.

She added organisers are now working ‘full steam ahead’ to make sure it takes place on Saturday as planned.

The show will open tomorrow at 9am and all livestock classes are expected to run as planned but times may be subject to change – the Light Horse Section will start at 8am and details of that will be announced in due course.

Trade stand holders currently have access to the field at Knockaloe Beg Farm on foot at their own risk – no vehicles are allowed on the show field at this time.
