royal-visit-playford-boring-adelaide-teamAnother week and Adelaide is in the international spotlight again, this time due to the Adelaide royal visit.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent part of Wednesday in Elizabeth visiting the Northern Sound System on Elizabeth Way and attending a reception at the Playford Civic Centre.

The Boring Adelaide team was at the event to bring you the colour and the insights – and Steve brought back something quite unexpected!

With this show going out on Anzac Day Eve, we take time to look at the first Anzac Day event ever, which took place in Adelaide in 1915.

It was bizarre!

Continuing the historic theme, we also chat with Chloe from Yelp about the Nanna Skillz Tasting Festival on Sunday, May 4, in which local food and craft producers will be demonstrating the skills of yesteryear from brewing to pickling to recycling objects from the past.

And in a further acknowledgement of Anzac Day, we chat with Louanna Hacket, an exercise physiologist from Funlife Fitness Centre at Ingle Farm, about her work rehabilitating veterans.

Plus there’s wine from the Barossa, music from Ben Searcy and a saucy Adelaide Visa Council.
