CONGRATULATIONS! in association with FreeVox are delighted to offer two free pairs of tickets to see the
ORQUESTA BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB (with 13 musicians on stage including original members of band) at the superb Technopolis Open-Air Theatre, Amoudara, Heraklion on Friday 8th July - doors open at 20:00.

Congratulations to our lucky winners
Byron Kritzas and Kathy Julian whose names were first out of the hat in our prize draw and both win two free tickets to the concert.

There were many correct answers to our question "Havana is the capital city of which country?" - Byron Kritzas and Kathy Julian correctly answered "Cuba".

Many thanks to all of you who entered! More free tickets to come soon, so better luck next time guys!

Buena Vista Social Club is an unforgettable journey through the music of the artists who sparked a worldwide musical phenomenon which began when American guitarist Ry Cooder went to Havana to re-discover the original (and mostly forgotten) members of the 'club'. Collaborating with film-maker Wim Wenders, a documentary (and subsequent album) was released in the late 80s and the rest is history - you can watch the award winning film here for free!
