We are pleased to share that the Royal Agricultural & Horticultural Society of South Australia (RA&HS), which launched its digital Show Museum on the Quartex platform earlier this year, has announced a new digital format for the popular Royal Adelaide Show with #TheShowAtHome.
In place of a physical event this year, the Royal Adelaide Show has launched ‘The Show @ Home’ – an online platform full of Show-related content covering showbags, rides, carnival games, animals, competitions, and of course, the Show Museum.
To further provide a valuable resource to the South Australian community, and safeguard historical records digitally, the RA&HS Archives developed its online Show Museum on Quartex. Available to the public, and continuously updated with new materials and content, the Show Museum provides a great starting point to revive great Show memories, learn about agriculture, and begin historical research.
The records held in the Archives are an important historical and cultural resource and the RA&HS aims to preserve the history of the Royal Adelaide Show - and South Australian primary industry in general - for the benefit of future generations.
By simply searching the Show Museum online you can delve into rich archival material relating to the 180-year history of the Society, Royal Adelaide Show, and Royal Adelaide Wine Show. This includes everything from showbags and souvenirs, to the history of woodcutting, sheaf tossing, livestock, wine, cookery, and craft.
