After a workshop run by Mudgee Performing Arts held in July this year Jill Baggett and Pamela Meredith read their stories at Mudgee Town hall theatre as part of the Mudgee Readers Festival in August.
Much fun and laughter from the audience showed the evening of telling tall tales a great success.
With St Mary’s Church Mudgee we hosted a night of poems, stories and songs to celebrate Henry Lawson’s 150th Birthday. Henry went to school for a time at the school attached to St Mary’s. Our local readers and musicians were joined by professional actors to showcase the multi faceted works of Henry Lawson. Three hours of listening and participation kept the audience enthralled and wishing for more when the night came to a close.
An evening of stories and poetry readings, the works of Henry Lawson, will be held on Wednesday evening the 14th June from 7pm in the Monsignor Flanagan Centre of St Mary of the Presentation Church Mudgee.
The event is being held to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Henry’s birth. Readers include Kevin Pye, Bruce Roberts, Bruce McGregor, Sam Paine, Ross Kurtz, Fr Tony Hennessey and open mike time for anyone else who would like to join in.
Mudgee Valley Writers and St Mary’s Parish are sponsoring the event. Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be supplied. BYO nibbles.
