The Variety Artists Club of New Zealand Incorporated is the premier association for entertainers and performing artists in this country. The club was formed in 1966 to foster the friendship and cooperation of its members and to promote goodwill in the entertainment industry. Based in Auckland, we have members from all over New Zealand and the world.

The highlight of our calendar is our annual Benny Awards Night. This is a black-tie event featuring performances by legends of New Zealand entertainment and the presentation of prestigious awards such as The Agnew Excellence Award, Top Variety Artist, Top Musician and the Rising Star Award.

The highest honour in the VAC is the Benny Award which is presented to those who have achieved a lifetime of excellence in the entertainment industry. Previous winners include icons of Kiwi entertainment such as Sir Howard Morrison, Dame Malvina Major, Rob Guest, Billy T. James and Larry Morris.

Tickets to our prestigious Benny Awards are now on sale. This year’s awards evening is Sunday the 12th of October from 6PM, doors are open from 5PM. Tickets are $85 for financial VAC members and $95 for non-members. This covers your meal, entertainment and the awards presentations. There will be a cash bar available on the night.

If you only come to one club event each year, then this is the one! Glamour, superb production and entertainment, a great venue and dinner, the chance to mix with your peers in very pleasant surroundings and of course, acknowledge our achievements.

We had a fantastic awards night last year and this year promises to be just as great. You all know the format for the night and that we always surprise you with some great entertainment leading up to the highlight of the evening, the presentation of the prestigious Benny Award.
