Ladies’ Nights return with global outlook

Farmlands’ immensely popular Ladies’ Night series has returned, helmed by broadcasting personalities Ben Hurley and Annabelle White.

The dynamic duo is promising a night of food, facts and fun with their show Around the World. The evening will be filled with handy tips and tricks on travel, calling on the well-travelled pair’s own globetrotting experiences. It will be a highly interactive night, with a chance to win great prizes and have lots of laughs.

Annabelle is a familiar face to many shareholders, having participated in the Ladies’ Nights series before. She says she jumped at the chance to come back for her third Ladies’ Night road trip because the series continues to come up with something that is completely different.

“It’s a travel show that will be fun and informative. It’s all about celebrating life and making things easier for everyone,” she says. “I simply love being in the room with all those wonderful women – it’s the perfect tonic and it’s better than alcohol! You cannot imagine how rewarding it is to be in a room with such incredibly inspirational women. It’s so real, so authentic and so personally rewarding. “We have so many laughs!”

While Annabelle is a seasoned Ladies’ Night traveler, this will be Ben’s first time appearing at the event. He knows provincial New Zealand very well, having been on the comedy circuit for 18 years. “I’ve been up and down this country plenty of times and know it intimately,” he says. “I hear there are a lot of bubbly minds and bubbly people at Ladies’ Nights.”

Ben brings an impeccable balance between globetrotting and rural Kiwi life to the show. Having travelled to most parts of the world after spending his formative years in Taranaki, he now combines regular comedy gigs with a rural block in Bay of Plenty, complete with sheep, kiwifruit and avocados. “I’m going to leave what people can expect from the show as a mystery. But obviously I’ve been employed to be the Magic Mike eye candy for the night.”

The Ladies’ Night series offers a chance to get away for the night, with great food (a sit down meal is included in the $40 ticket price), opportunities to shop around the latest offers from Farmlands Card Partners and guaranteed good times.
