The Main Arena entertainment in 2016 features the ROOFTOP EXPRESS SHOW –  it’s Australiana comedy, awe-inspiring horsemanship and thrilling stunts, one for the entire family!

One Performance Only – Saturday Night

rooftop-express-showLed by David Manchon, Rooftop Express is a new show combining showmanship, stunts, horses and cattle with the swagger of an Aussie larrikin.

“We’ve got a show where basically I ride a horse up on top of a 40-foot gooseneck – a big trailer – and we put some big brahman bullocks up there.

“We’ve got some world-first stunts, some pretty important horsemanship skills and, most importantly, some bush comedy – it’s a bit of a hoot.

“The show is a narrative that has been set up with me looking for men to join my contract mustering team and in comes this guy who’s a lovable rogue who is actually a liability but he knows how to have a good time.”

The joker of the show raced around on a quad bike trying to prove his worth.

The slapstick, tongue-in-cheek humour expertly walked the line between adult and child contexts, keeping the whole family enthralled.

David Manchon is quite the showman – with ruggedly handsome looks, the gift of the gab and impressive husbandry skills, he admitted recently, ‘it was a little bit more nerve-wracking doing it in front of bush people cause they know what you’re doing”.

 

Please Note
The Show aims to run to time, but as there are people and animals involved we may not be able to be on time all the time. Please be patient and we’ll get the events on as soon as possible. In some cases the Show Society may need to adjust start times and we will let you know as soon as we are able.
