Tickets are now on sale for The Topp Twins Heading for the Hills!
We’re hitting the road on April Fools Day bringing merriment, mayhem and mirth to the regions. The country’s hills will be alive with the sound of laughter !
We had a ball filming the third series of our TV show ‘Topp Country’, which will screen later this year on TV1, and loved discovering what imaginative and hard-working Kiwis are doing in the regions – so we are hitching up our brand new “Stinky” – a wee shed on wheels complete with a pot belly stove, and heading for the hills. A big shout out to our friend Lance Morrison at Morrison Cars, Christchurch, who is kindly supporting the South Island leg of the Tour giving us a grunty vehicle to tow our Stinky with.
Expect the unexpected, and don’t miss a great night of hilarious entertainment guaranteed to have you laughing or crying with “sheer joy” (or so the Press Release says !)
We hope to see ya’ll there!

Great family viewing, especially while you tuck into some Boxing Day leftovers!
Just in time for Christmas, the Topp Twins have released their greatest hits, celebrating some of the most magical moments in their music over almost thirty-five years of performing.
It’s been 30 years since The Topp Twins started their own unique style of music and performance. These songs are their favourites over these years and while putting the album together they recognised three distinct styles of music they have written and sung.
Love Songs, Politics and Yodels – it’s a crazy combination but it has worked for them – Lynda and Jools hope you enjoy this album as much as they have enjoyed their long singing career.
