After the success of their new Saturday Night Spectacular Variety Shows, the Royal Hotel Wyong will be hosting an afternoon of Australian Bush Poetry on Sunday, November 19, at 3:00pm.
Hosted by Marney McQueen (from the musicals Dream Lover, Priscilla and Hairspray), this afternoon is an invitation to people who love listening to poetry, and to those who write and perform poetry themselves.
The champion Bush Balladeer from Victoria, Don McQueen, will be regaling audiences with some classic Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson, as well as a variety of other Australian Bush Poetry.
Local bush poet, Bruce Walker, will also be presenting some poems, including some of his own.
“With these two, you will feel as though you are sitting beside the campfire in the pioneer days.
“We are in for a very entertaining afternoon, full of laughter and poignancy,” Ms McQueen said.
Children are welcome to listen to the poetry or perform.
This is an all ages-event.
