Wallets-full of value in your Rand Show 2015 ticket


Words: SA Shows

A ticket to the Rand Show is your ticket to escaping the ordinary with non-stop entertainment and family fun. For roughly what you'd pay to take the family for a movie and popcorn, you can load up the car and head off to the Rand Show, where an entire day of free top-class entertainment awaits you.

Tickets for teens aged 13-16 cost R50, and kids aged 6-12 pay just R20, while littlies under six enter for free. Mid-week is even better value, with adults paying just R50 at the gate and R60 through Computicket, from 7-10 April. (Parking is R20 per car.)
