Entertainers ready to dazzle at Northampton Show
Spectators at the annual Northampton District Agricultural Society Show tomorrow can expect some new and unusual attractions.
Among them will be several dazzling performances by Carnarvon-based aerial trapeze artist Theaker Von Ziarno.
Throughout the day, the multi-talented Von Ziarno will perform stilt walk, aerial trapeze and fire show routines.
Artist Phil Doncon will provide offbeat entertainment with his Paint Storm performance, blending live painting, music and dance in one unconventional show.
Northampton Show secretary and treasurer Dianne Hulme said Doncon was sure to entertain.
“He’s quite amazing,” she said.
“He paints with a big brush and canvas, and he does handstands and cartwheels and all sorts of things in between.
“He talks as he goes so it’s a bit of a workshop in that way.”
Other attractions will include junk art, beaut ute and home brew competitions, a billy cart race, a fashion parade and a Greenough Wildlife Park display.
The usual agricultural show mainstays haven’t been forgotten either, with exhibition hall competitions, showjumping, sheep shearing and much more set to be part of the event.
Geraldton-based acoustic singer-songwriter Julian Webb will close the night with his diverse repertoire of original and re-vamped cover tunes.
Mrs Hulme said organisers were hoping for a big crowd when the gates open on Saturday, after last year’s show attracted more than 2500 people. Gates open at 7.30am.
The show is now in its 101st year.
