Lots to see and enjoy at the sunny Royal Show

Waiting for Video...

All eyes were on the Royal Manx Agricultural Show on Friday and Saturday as people of all ages enjoyed themselves at the annual event in Patrick.

The sun came out as thousands of people attended the show, which is in its 61st year.

A Galloway bull came out on top as it was crowed Supreme Champion.

Judge Peter Dale from Greeba, picked out Klondyke Powerplay, which is owned by Alison and John Teare of Bride.

As well as the animal and livestock competition classes, there was a wide range on offer for all visitors.

In the entertainment ring, there were dog and duck antics, Ridgeside Falconry Show, a jousting show with Stampede Stunt Company, a display from the police dog unit, and lucrher racing.

Visitors, at Knockaloe Farm, were also treated to a parade of vintage machinery and classic cars.

Christine Pain, the show secretary, was very pleased with the event.

She said: ‘The show was busy and everyone seemed to be having a good time! The jousters were just brilliant and provided a funny and skilful show. The British Champion lumberjacks had a new show for this year, and they proved very popular and entertaining.’
