WORDfest

Word Fest logo

WORDFest is back for a second year for an exciting celebration of the spoken and written word, with readings and discussion, poetry, song, books, plays and other writings!

WORDfest will have engaging writing and craft workshops for all ages as well as a performance space and stalls from local artists. We hope WORDfest will help all age groups to enjoy and appreciate the power of words, and encourage the whole of the community to work together to put on something spectacular!
