Featuring current National female Champion Sue Pearce and multi-award winning writer/performer John Peel!
Hosted by local bush poet Caroline Tuohey Start your festival day with a fabulous cooked breakfast and enjoy a relaxing and entertaining morning of bush poetry by an Australian champion. John Peel is a multi-award-winner writer and performer of bush poetry who is a regular at Narrandera's John O'Brien Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Walk-ups by audience members is a huge art of this event too - so find a poem and have a go in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. There is no pressure to 'compete' - the idea is to share poems we all enjoy listening to, so be brave and have a go! It's great fun! Students are particularly welcome to recite - either reading a poem or reciting from memory. We had previously advertised a guest appearance of Sue Pearce, but unfortunately due to ill health Sue cannot make this year's festival. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
