Things are moving along at the Australian Poetry Hall of Fame with a program of events, including weekly markets, now underway.
The first market for local produce and crafts took place on the weekend, and was well supported bringing increased foot traffic to the southern end of the CBD. More stallholders are expected next week.
The markets will continue to be held on Saturday mornings from 8am until 12pm. The intention for this market is to provide a space for local farmers, produce and homemade craft. For stallholders the cost is $5 per table or $10 if you bring your own table. There will also be music and poetry readings throughout the morning.
Other regular events happening include poetry readings every Wednesday evening starting at 6.30pm, and a jam night for musicians every Thursday. The third Sunday of every month has been set aside for songwriters to get together to play music and original songs - bring your songs, voices, instruments and percussion to join in or just to sit. relax and have a listen.
On Tuesday the 16th of June auditions will take place for a theatre production ready for the Grand Opening on September 20th, and any locals that want to join in are welcome.
Pending the arrival of a projector and screen, there are also plans to start a film club showing films on the last Saturday of each month.
