This weekend's Classic Hits Winery Tour at Tutukaka is heading for a sellout, but four Whangarei folk don't have to worry about that - they've won free tickets to the concert courtesy of the Northern Advocate.

Marg Northey and Kitty Mulder, both of Whangarei, each won a double pass to the Classic Hits Winery Tour at Tutukaka in a competition in the Northern Advocate over the past two weeks.

Almost 200 entries were received for the competition. The winners will see The Exponents, Breaks Co-op and Kiwi pop star Stan Walker take the stage when the Winery Tour hits Tutukaka Marina on Sunday.

The venue has a capacity of 3000 and the last two Winery Tour shows at Tutukaka proved to be sellouts. While some tickets are left for Sunday, it's highly likely the show will be a sellout too.


The gig will be the first time The Exponents have performed at Tutukaka since the old Tutukaka Hotel (the Toots) burned down in 2000, just a few days after the group played a gig there.
