I bought a $50 twin stroller from target today. The only reason I bought it was to be able to push my 4 & 2yo around in it at the easter show. Every other year, we've only stayed half a day to go home for naps, but this year, none of them nap anymore so I bought a stroller in case they get tired so we can make a day of it. Anyway, the weight limit is 30kg. I would estimate my 4yo's weight to be about 22kg and my 2yo's about 15kg, which is over the guideline of 30kg.

What happens if you exceed recommended pram weight?

I'd say that the fabric and / or frame wouldn't be strong enough. As in, eventually the weight would cause the fabric to fray or tear, and could cause the frame to buckle.
But, this is a guess, and I think it'd take a while to happen. If you want to use the stroller on a one off or occasional basis, it'll be fine. I'd use it, and I did once buy a cheap stroller to use on a holiday, that I left on the street when I was finished with it.

I would say you wouldn't be able to push it very well. I have a 3 wheeler and tried to put my 3 Year old in it when we were out one day, and I couldn't steer it, I figured it was because she was above the recommended weight (we bought it for the baby).
I would try it on dirt with both kids in it before going to the show.

Prams/strollers end up being hard to push and steer. It's a pain! I had the strider plus and a toddler attachment, and once the boys exceeded the limit, it proved to be difficult to push and steer (just moved awkwardly if that makes sense?).

I'm hoping it will be ok for one day. They won't want to sit in it all the time, but I want it just in case.
