First staged in 1894 at the Old Wanderers Cricket Grounds, the Rand Show is South Africa’s heritage show. Over the years it has moved to new venues and embraced new themes but it endures as a firm South African family favourite annually attracting over 200 000 visitors.

“Although one Rand Show has just ended, we are already excited for next year,” says Newman. “2019 will be our 125th anniversary, so you can expect us to really pull out all the stops to make it even bigger and even better. Mark it in your diaries now, as you won’t want to miss this one!”
