Poetry in the Park

'Poetry in the Park' had been held for 28 consecutive years by two local retired school teachers John Hetherington and Bruce Roberts. 2017 was their last performance, with them also retiring from performing at the Henry Lawson Festival.

Poetry in the ParkHowever, 2018 sees a change for the Sunday poetry at the Henry Lawson Obelisk, the site of Henry Lawson’s birth in Grenfell.

New faces will now entertain you at the Sunday morning 'Poetry Readings & Recitals' with items being performed by people of the Weddin Shire.

It is a free event with all visitors welcome to come along and enjoy. The atmosphere of the poetry early on a cool foggy Sunday morning is enhanced by the campfire and visitors can keep warm by sipping on freshly made billy tea and damper.

If you have't been before, join the poeple of Weddin Shire under the spreading gum tree (planted by Lawson's daughter Bertha) at Lawson Park on Sunday, 10th June for an Australian heart warmer. Bring a chair. Damper starts at 9am and poetry at 10am.
