These are just a few of the new rides that will have participants screaming with delight. The Royal Show has once again made sure that the latest rides arriving in the country will be presented at the fairground. One of the high points will surely be the big Ferrace Wheel which has been absent for a number of years. There will be enough entertainment for all ages as well as the thrill seekers.
Visitors to this year’s Royal Show are in for a real treat as the organisers are thrilled to have secured, not one, but two, extreme stunt acts guaranteed to bring mind blowing entertainment.
On 30 and 31 May 2014, during the Natal Royal Agricultural show, the South African ladies Tentpegging team will be taking on a very experienced ladies team from Jordan. This is the first time in South Africa’s history that a female team from Jordan will be competing in an international test in South Africa.
Tentpegging is based on the cavalry sport of removing wooden 'tent pegs' from the ground on horseback, using a sword or lance at full gallop. The sport is around 2,500 years old, developed by Asian armies who relied on their skill with the lance to defeat their enemies.
FireTree will be playing at the #RoyalRock at the 2014 Royal Show on 24 May. Fire Tree is a Pietermaritzburg-based band with a growing fan-base and an increasingly long playlist of audience-pleasing songs.
Jason Fox (vocalist and rhythm guitarist) and Mark Williams (bass-player) – long-time jam partners and founding members of the band FireTree – invited lead guitarist Tyrone Ramone to join the band in 2013, and drummer CJ Smit in February 2014.
