Book your tickets now for a night of poetry, the region’s finest food and wine and dancing on Molong’s Village Green. On Saturday 23rd February 2019 from 6pm the Molong Advancement Group will welcome you to Molong for a night of poetry, the region’s finest food and wine and dancing on Molong’s Village Green under starry skies!
Enjoy a complimentary wine on arrival, three course dinner prepared by Eugowra’s Eat Your Greens with music and renowned good times provided by the talented Cecelia Rochelli and Trouble With Johnny Band.
Local wine from Twisted River and Monument Wines, beer and cider will also be available for purchase. If you love regional food and wine then this Banjo Paterson Festival event will be perfect for you.
The special guest for the evening is Marco Gliori a full-time Poet and Storyteller. Marco was recently awarded the Spirit of Waltzing Matilda Poetry Award by ABC Radio National. He is the proverbial travelling minstrel enthralling audiences with his original poetry and anecdotes, encouraging mateship, laughter, and a big slice of respect for those who have gone before us.
For the past 25 years Marco has travelled Australia with his original works entertaining at Festivals, as an after dinner speaker, and at Schools. He toured for over a decade for both the Queensland and Victorian Arts Council’s Artist in Education program, presenting over 3,000 shows.
The Australian Women’s Weekly once declared Marco their Modern Banjo, a claim he immediately rejects. “No-one could emulate what Poets like Banjo and Henry Lawson achieved, but I am happy and privileged to continue the tradition.” For more information about this event please call 6366 8593.
