Poets Breakfast

September 22, 2007

Poets head for Kenilworth again… things could be verse! It’s getting towards September again, when, each year, there’s something of a migration of poets to Kenilworth for the annual Poets’ Breakfast. As Part of the Kenilworth Celebrates!

Festival and organized by the Conondale Range Committee and the First Responders, the breakfast has gained in popularity each year. This year’s event, on Saturday September 22nd (8 to 10.30am) will see some familiar poets plus some new faces.

There’s a great symbiosis about the Conondale Range Committee’s Breakfast; the audience loves the poets and the poets regard the audience as among the best. Host, popular local poet Ian Mackay, tells us that no two bush poets can agree about exactly what bush poetry is.

The Kenilworth performers, he tells us, have very diverse styles yet share a common ability to make audiences smile, laugh and empathise. The arrangements for this year's breakfast have changed slightly. While the venue in the showgrounds adjacent to the hall is exactly the same, the entry and catering arrangements are different.

Entry price for the performance is $5 and no bookings are required. As always CRC will be providing Real Coffee and breakfast is available from a menu selection which starts at 8 to 10.30am. As well as the Breakfast, there’s opportunity to take in the excellent art exhibition in the adjoining hall. Come and see why people come back, year after year.
