The Rand Show 2014... It's showtime!

Issued by: The Rand Show | 8 Apr 2014 12:31
Do you like being entertained? Then get ready, because South Africa's biggest consumer show is gearing up for another bumper entertainment extravaganza. Get ready for 11 action-packed days of family fun. Get ready... because it's showtime!
Masses of performers are gathering to bring 11 days of magic, excitement and fun to the stages, arenas and halls of this year's Rand Show.

There are stunt-car drivers flying in from Italy, and a winter wonderland of snow with South Africa's longest-ever indoor ice toboggan slide being trucked up from Cape Town.

The world's most recognisable science geek - the Naked Scientist - has already booked his ticket out of London, while South Africa's strongest men are getting pumped for a qualifier of epic proportions.

Some of Mzansi's best-loved artists and groups are tuning up for their stage appearances, and the military is going through its paces to ensure its tactical displays leave audiences gasping, while some of SA's top chefs are sharpening their knives for displays of culinary flare in the SA Chefs Theatre.

And lining up behind them are magicians, gymnasts, animal trainers, funfair-ride operators... all coming together to create a world of entertainment choice, with something to excite and delight every member of the family.
