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 two Australian champions.
Sue Pearce is a multi-award-winning writer and performer of bush poetry whose accomplishments, including the current Australian Women's Bush Poetry title, sees her as a much sought after presenter for festivals and charity events.
A country girl at heart, Sue's work very much reflects her love of the bush, its people and its values.
John Peel is also 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.
WHEN: Sunday Oct 28 TIME: 7:30am - 9am WHERE: Masonic Hall/Fusion Centre, Kingfisher Ave COST: BREAKFAST $12
Proceeds from the breakfast go to the Country Education Foundation of Coleambally-Darlington Point.
Menu: Egg and Bacon Rolls Toast and Spreads Tea, Coffee, Orange Juice Fruit Platter
