With Australia’s largest annual ticketed event just weeks away, the RAS of NSW is looking forward to an extremely productive year, particularly with the growth in the number of events held at Spotless Stadium.

This year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show will be held from Thursday 6 April to Wednesday 19 April.

Adam Macrae, 34, is a rural high school teacher and Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) Community Futures Grant recipient. He is deeply passionate about supporting young people in his hometown of Coonamble and has been mentoring his former student Kelsey Shields, 18, for around six years.

Tracie Murphy from Bangor has fond childhood memories of the Sydney Royal Easter Show; going to the Moore Park showgrounds as a family with mum and dad. So for her, becoming a Show volunteer was a natural progression.

“Being a long-term Showgoer I’ve always had affection for it. I saw the opportunity to be a volunteer as a way to give back,” she said. “People save up all year to have a great day at the Show, and it makes me feel good if I can help them enjoy it without stress and hassle,” Tracie said.

Gregor Lersch, global star of the floral design world, is coming back to Sydney in 2017.

At the 2016 Show, Lersch was invited to judge the Sydney Royal National Floral Designer competition which he’ll officiate at again on 6 April at this year’s Show.
