Poetry on the Boards

There is a new host for the 2018 Poetry on the Boards. We welcome Geoffrey W Graham.

Geoffrey has been attending the Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival for a number of years now and this year has come on board to help with the popular Poetry on the Boards event.

"Poetry on the Boards gives people an opportunity to see a mixture of verse, be it traditional/contemporary or serious/humorous. If you would like to have a go yourself, you are more than welcome – it’s not a competition – it’s about having a go" said Geoffrey.

The event kicks off after the parade (around 2.30pm) at the Criterion Hotel in Main Street. Simply approach Geoffrey (he’s the bloke dressed as Henry Lawson) and put your name down; then settle back and have some fun.

All ages are encouraged – and yes, it is a family event so please choose your piece in keeping with a family friendly environment. Entries taken on the day.

It’s a one-hour event - 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

Further Information please call Geoffrey on 0412 725 470 or email him at
