Devastation for Ekka workers as Brisbane iconic show is cancelled for second year running | 7NEWS

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Devastation for Ekka workers as Brisbane iconic show is cancelled for second year running | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

Ekka workers are devastated, with the iconic Brisbane show cancelled for the second year running due to the pandemic.

It’s a cruel blow less than a week out from the scheduled opening, but showbag sales have been moved online to www.showbagshop.com.au in an attempt to recoup costs.

“This is our livelihood and our business, and it’s just a brutal outcome.” – Brendan Williams, Chicane Showbags.
