Last weekend saw over 1000 festival-goers attend sellout author in-conversations, workshops, free sessions and a superb literary dinner, all part of the 2014 Southern Highlands Writers’ Festival.
Our new festival home at the Bradman Museum proved to be the perfect location, with festival-goers able to enjoy the Museum’s galleries and refreshments in between sessions. The “Bradman Punch” was a big hit on Opening Night, and the scones served for morning tea were not only the largest scones ever seen in the Highlands, they also proved to be the yummiest!
Festival highlights included the lovely Ann Eyers' (pictured below) winning performance at Fest Factor; Bob Carr’s impersonation of Gough Whitlam and Stefano Manfredi’s unforgettable dessert at the Literary Dinner!
Festivals of this size are not only the result of hundreds and hundreds of hours of work, but also due to the generosity of our wonderful sponsors and volunteers… I could not produce an event of this quality without you! Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart and I hope to see you back in 2015.
Speaking of 2015, put 10-12 July into your diary for the 2015 SHWF!
Please keep referring to this website over the coming month for more details and in the meantime, happy reading and writing!
