The School of Arts and the neighbouring Scots Presbyterian Church Hall will be the hub of speaker events at the Berry Writers Festival on Saturday 23rd and 24th October. There will also be a coffee/food hub behind the School of Arts, where audience members can regroup and socialise between events.
Other locations around town will host breakout events and workshops on 22nd, as well as on the Saturday and Sunday. These include the CWA Hall, The Uniting Church Hall, the Anglican Church Hall, JoJo’s and the Coach House.
Everyone in Berry has been so generous in supporting the Festival. We are continually receiving offers of catering, printing and accommodation as well as funding. Everything is very, very gratefully received. We are a new festival and I for one had no idea of the complexities of the organisation required, or of the resources we would need. But somehow it is happening.
Please come and join our teams if you would like to contribute. You can register your interest here.
