OUR TOP PICKS
THE OPENING weekend of Tamworth Country Music Festival hosts a huge number of fantastic events.
Here at The Leader, we’ve made the difficult pick of acts not to miss that little bit easier with five of our must-see events.
STAR MAKER FINALISTS
If you can’t wait the whole day to see the finalists play in Toyota Park, there’s a taste of the talent just shy of an hour out of Tamworth in picturesque Nundle.
