Poetry in the Park

2019 sees a temporary return of local stalwart John Hetherington for the Sunday morning renditions of Henry Lawson poetry and prose at the Henry Lawson Obelisk, the site of Henry Lawson’s birth in Grenfell.

Poetry in the ParkIt is a free event with all visitors welcome. 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 with golden syrup.

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