Topp Twins at Wanaka A&P Show

Topp Twins the top act for the 80th anniversary of the Wanaka A&P show

Kiwi entertainers Topp Twins are one of the major drawcards for the Wanaka A&P Show. Jools and Lynda Topp are set to kick off the Show’s 80th anniversary celebrations on March 10 and 11.

The two-day show, which attracts 40,000 people to the Wanaka Showgrounds each year, is regarded as the South Island’s premier lifestyle, agricultural, and pastoral event.

The duo first performed at the event in 2010 and Wanaka Show co-ordinator Jane Stalker is delighted they will return to celebrate the show’s important milestone.

“Not only are the Topp Twins fantastic, family-friendly talent, they are also true Kiwi icons and always up for a great time – a perfect fit for the Wanaka Show,” she says. “Jools and Lynda and their hilarious alter egos will be in fine form, and we are thrilled to be welcoming them back to Wanaka once again.”

The Topp Twins will be entertaining show-goers in the morning and afternoon on both days of the event on the Radio Wanaka main stage.  

“The Wanaka Show is in a beautiful setting by the lake, and there are lots of fabulous things that happen there. We’re very excited,” says Lynda. “We’re bringing all the characters with us – Ken and Ken, and Camp Mother and Camp Leader, and we’ve got some new songs too. We’re also bringing our American cowboy friend to show him what a real A&P show is like.”

The Topp Twins’ on-stage antics will be complemented by the show’s classic drawcards such as equestrian and livestock events, the Beef + Lamb NZ Golden Lamb Awards (also known as the Glammies), sheep shearing, and wood chopping demonstrations. More than 400 trade stalls are also set to feature along with a dedicated Kids Zone and Life & Style marquee. The famous novelty Jack Russell race also returns.

“This show is shaping up to be our best yet. Our jam-packed entertainment line-up is extraordinary and fitting for our 80th anniversary,” adds Jane. “There will certainly be something that appeals to people of all ages and interests. It’s a fantastic two-day out for the whole family.”
