2021 Perth Royal Show to offer discounted tickets and walk-in COVID vaccination clinic

2021 Perth Royal Show to offer discounted tickets and walk-in COVID vaccination clinic
September 20, 2021

The 2021 Perth Royal Show - Western Australia's largest family event - commences Saturday 25th September, with discounted tickets, a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic and traditional Show favourites on offer.

The Western Australian Government has provided $4 million to support the 2021 Perth Royal Show, with funding going towards a range of initiatives, including discounted tickets to help ensure all Western Australians can attend the Show.

Lotterywest has also provided a further $650,000 grant to the Royal Agricultural Society of WA for the 2021 Show to support half-price tickets for children on Thursday 30th September and for seniors on Friday 1st October.

A total of 17,000 free entry tickets will be provided to marginalised and disadvantaged children and families, seniors, people with disability and people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background.

For the first time, all ticket sales for this year's Royal Show are online via the website or the Perth Royal Show app.

With 314 showbags on offer at the Perth Royal Show, Consumer Protection has inspected almost 800 toys from the showbags to ensure they comply with Australian safety standards, and to keep children safe.

WA Commerce Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson commented "well done to the Royal Agricultural Society for taking a proactive approach to safety by inviting Consumer Protection to conduct showbag checks and ensure toys and novelty items comply with Australian safety standards.

"While a few issues were identified and are being addressed, it's important for the showbags to get a tick of approval to keep kids safe."

'Roll up for WA' will be in full swing at this year's Perth Royal Show, with a walk-in vaccination clinic, and an information, education and booking hub.

Medical staff will be available and on hand to answer any questions and talk through the vaccination process.

Free buggy rides will also be available from the 'Roll up for WA' building to Tom Wilding Pavilion to get a vaccination.

A 'Roll up for WA' hub will open from 10am to 7pm all week with free children’s activities, fun giveaways and much more.

Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan advised "I encourage all Western Australians to take advantage of discounted tickets to enjoy a day out with family and friends and to support businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19.

"If you're taking your family to this year's Royal Show and haven't had a chance to get vaccinated yet, this is the perfect opportunity to walk in without an appointment.

"Anyone aged 12 and older can 'Roll up for WA' at this year's Royal Show."

Western Australian Agriculture and Food Minister Alannah MacTiernan added "The Perth Royal Show showcases WA's agricultural industry to a city audience like no other event, and it is fantastic to see the Show back in 2021.

"Exhibits like Farm 2 Food give Perth kids the opportunity to learn about our primary industries - from milking a cow to learning about soils and leaving a thank you message for our farmers."
