Winterwords is so much more than a writers’ festival; it is five days of talking, listening, watching, and doing which aims to foster the celebration of words!
Attend a panel discussion or author talk, participate in a workshop, listen to, or tell a story, go to a film, listen to some music, sing at karaoke, see an art exhibition, share some poetry, play some word games, chat in the pub by the open fire. Events take place in many of our wonderful heritage and civic buildings such as the Beechworth Town Hall, the Beechworth Library, the Old Railway Station and Oregon Hall Quercus. There’s also music, fun, stories, and games at many of our classic pubs. Activities, such as our art exhibitions and play readings are run in collaboration with other community organisations such as the Mayday Hills Arts Society, Beechworth U3A, The Beechworth Theatre Company, and Quercus Beechworth.
With so much to do over five days in winter, Winterwords is truly a unique event.
