The Guernsey North Show and Battle of Flowers has been one of the main outdoor events in Guernsey’s summer calendar for many years. Run by the Northern Agricultural and Horticultural Society, the event takes place in the wonderful rural setting of Sausmarez Manor and attracts thousands of visitors each year.
The programme of arena events includes showcasing local and off-island talent, a fun fair, and numerous stall-holders providing refreshments and other items for sale throughout the two days.
The Show features the displays of exhibitors’ entries including the traditional livestock classes, such as Guernsey cattle, goats and agricultural produce. In more recent years, the Show’s emphasis has shifted to encourage more amateur involvement, with many entries in the fur and feather classes, cut flowers, fruit and vegetables, flower arranging, cakes and baking, and the craft classes such as wood or metal working, embroidery and photography.

The Battle of Flowers takes place in the afternoon of the second day, and the spectators can take part in judging the colourful floats, which are all competing for the coveted “Prix d’honneur”. The Battle culminates in the evening illuminated cavalcade, rounded off with a spectacular firework display.
