Due to the Australian Government’s recent announcement on the Coronavirus we have been forced to cancel this year’s Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival of Arts. This is not a decision we have made lightly; this is in response to the NSW Governments Public Health (Covid 19 Public Events) Order and is in the best interests of the community. Grenfell has an ageing community who are vulnerable and we have a responsibility to protect our community through this pandemic.
Over the last couple of months, we have seen an amazing amount of passion for the Festival in our little town. We will not let this latest challenge derail this new passion within our community. The committee will regroup in July for the Henry Lawson Festival review and the Festival will come back bigger and better than ever in 2021.
