Sharing the good earth: The Society behind the Royal Adelaide Show With Rob Linn, Director, Historical Consultants Pty Ltd on Wednesday 14 May, 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start at Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA City West campus, Hawke Building, 55 North Terrace.
The Royal Adelaide Show is South Australia’s largest community event, staged by the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of SA Inc. (RA&HSSA) and beloved by the community. The Society has been part of our State’s life for 175 years.
However, it is not just about the Royal Show, indeed the Society has played an important role in initiatives such as the Adelaide Botanic Garden, Roseworthy College, and the South Australian wine industry. Few would understand that the RA&HSSA has advanced the cause of rural industries beyond any other organisation.
In this lecture, Rob Linn will provide some tantalising insights into the story of the RA&HSSA and the Royal Adelaide Show, and reveal some of the Society’s extraordinary archive.
