Hundreds of islanders are expected to visit Guernsey's North Show which starts today.

It is an event that is steeped in tradition, proudly showcasing its agricultural and horticultural roots with displays of Guernsey cattle and goats alongside home-grown produce.

Cake makers, giant vegetable growers and well-groomed animals will all be competing to be judged the best on show.

On both days there is a fun fair and will be entertainment including stunt riders and sheepdog displays.

There will be the chance for children to get hands-on learning circus skills, making crafts such as wood or metal work and taking part in the children tug of war.

The show is organised by the Northern Agricultural and Horticultural Society and is the last of the summer shows on the island.

The second day will see the Battle of Flowers, where decorated floats are paraded around the arena in a floral spectacular.

It kicks off at 10:00am at Sausmerez Park.
