I am Jools Topp and I’m supposed to be a NZ Icon…. I entertain, make people laugh and dress up in funny costumes.
I have been graciously invited to Wanaka to perform at the A&P Show. We have previously come to the Wanaka A&P Show and had a blast. So we are really looking forward to coming back. We grew up going to A&P Shows, they are a bit of a family tradition.
Performing for the folks will be the highlight. The view from the showgrounds is stunning. The fact that you can just look across and see the lake and the mountains right there.
It can just be having a drink in the back of a horse truck with one of the folks at the show. Its all very sociable. I really enjoy just chatting with everyone. They all throw so much energy into making the show possible and its nice to be able to see them just relax and enjoy it on the day. The A&P Show is part of NZ that has endured the years. It is just a big sociable event for everyone.
Us of course - We tend to get around a bit. We want to go and see the people that can’t see us perform.
The stall owners, the people that are looking after animals etc. Make sure they get to see the whole show.
