Win tickets to fete

Ladies lunch on the lawn at the Culverden Country Fete.
Ladies lunch on the lawn at the Culverden Country Fete.

Culverden's Christmas Country Fete is on next Thursday and Marlborough Midweek has two tickets to give away.

The fete is a wonderful way to get into the festive season with hundreds of stalls offering Christmas gifts, decorations, lovely food and wonderful wine. The venue, Wynyard in Culverden, is a gorgeous spot among the trees. The musicians, creative rural experience and buzz of the event will make for a memorable day.

Renowned chef Jonny Schwass will be working wonders in the demonstration tent, including one session called The Love of Lard which asks cooks not to be afraid of a little fat - it's good for flavour and at Christmas time you can indulge.

Also at Culverden will be the Catherine Wells Trio, among other entertainers. The trio will entertain in the festive food and wine area.

Culverden is on State Highway 7. It is about three hours drive from Blenheim and 80 minutes north of Christchurch.

There are buses from Blenheim, making the day even more relaxing.

More information is available at Our giveaway tickets cover gate entry to the Culverden Christmas Country fete and a picnic lunch.

To enter, write your name, address and phone number and email address on the back of an envelope, and send it to Country Fete Competition, Marlborough Midweek, Box 242, Blenheim 7240.

Entries close October 22. The tickets are for next Thursday, October 25.
