This year we’re rewarding those who buy in preferential period with an additional benefit; the 2018 WOW Club. As a WOW Club member you’ll be notified about discounts, including on selected WOW merchandise, spot prizes, exclusive competition opportunities and offers on entry to the National WOW Museum (Nelson).
