What makes the Sydney Royal Easter show amazing!

Working at Show Radio was such a fantastic experience for me! This year, producing content here at the Sydney Royal Easter Show opened my eyes to how much more goes into the show. Previously, I’ve always just gone and seen the animals, ridden the rides, stuffed my face with food and gone home. However, coming up with new and exciting content has shown that there’s so much more to it and that there are a lot of interesting characters to meet.

I was lucky enough to meet Anna, a talented caricature artist who’s been drawing for the past 15 years. She started drawing back when she was living in New Orleans. Anna was broke, so she started drawing people who walked past her on the street. As she got better, people began paying her to draw them. She remarked about this sweet little old lady who came up to her one day and asked her to draw her naked riding on a tiger. Now she draws for children’s books and other media

I also met Peter Jakobsson, the Pipe Major at the Ingleburn RSL Community Pipes and Drums Association. He was such a passionate man. He wanted to share his love for the bagpipes with me, so much he spoke for 20 minutes, describing every aspect of a bagpipe, how to play it and the roles involved within his band.

So, if you’re like me and you’ve never put too much thought into the Sydney Royal Easter Show beyond the show bags, I encourage you to check out the rich community and history the show offers.
