RATA  – AOTNZ names Top Regional Arts Touring Awards for 2019

Best overall venue (Top Gig) – 4th Wall Theatre, New Plymouth

Manaakitanga (Hospitality) Award – Daisy Sawyers, Reefton

Best Theatre Venue – Expressions Whirinaki, Upper Hutt

Best Music Venue – The Laboratory, Lincoln

Best Individual Community Presenter – Heather McPherson, Bannockburn

AOTNZ offers congratulations to the winning venues, and to Daisy and Heather, and thanks all our venues for their continued support. Season’s greetings!
