2021 Perth Royal Show ready to open after $4m in gov support

The 2021 Perth Royal Show will kick-off this Saturday following $4 million of support from the WA Government.

This funding has gone towards a range of initiatives, including discounted tickets to help ensure all Western Australians can attend the Show, and a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

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 kids on Thursday September 30 and for seniors on Friday October 1.

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.

“It’s a testament to all Western Australians that Perth will safely host one of the country’s only Royal Agricultural Shows in 2021,” said Premier Mark McGowan.

“With my government’s support, the Royal Agricultural Society of WA has brought the Show roaring back to life, providing Western Australian families the opportunity to enjoy this iconic event.

“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.”
