Harrogate's Great Yorkshire Show 2016 gets under way
More than 130,000 visitors are expected over three days at the Great Yorkshire Show.
This year is the 158th "best of British farming" extravaganza at Harrogate's Great Yorkshire Showground.
An £11.5m exhibition hall the size of three and a half Olympic swimming pools, to house the Food Hall, is new this year.
There will be more than 1,200 stands, with competitions ranging from horse-shoeing to sheep-shearing.
Get live updates and highlights from the BBC throughout the three-day show.
The forecast on the first day is bright with warm sunny spells, light winds and a low risk of very isolated showers.
The 2012 event was cancelled after one day for the first time in its history due to heavy rain, at a cost of £2m.
