Live Poets at Don Bank
Venue: Don Bank Museum
Cost: $10 (includes drinks, supper)
*** CANCELLED to at least July
Facebook Post, August 4
About a month ago we had reasonable hopes that we may be able to start up 'live' sessions at Don Bank this month (August) - especially with our popular annual Short Fiction Cup session scheduled.
However the recent uptick in Covid 19 infections in NSW and the rapidly deteriorating situation in Victoria has understandably meant there was little chance that the NSW Health Corona Virus restrictions that had been put in place since March ref indoor entertainment could be relaxe...d.
Those provisions still stipulate that only 4 people can be present in each part of the sitting room where Live Poets would normally gather. As per public museum conditions in these cases contact sign in sheets and sanitising and cleaning regimes must be maintained. Mingling in the courtyard over supper and drinks would also be a breach of the guidelines.
This situation would seem to be unchanging for the foreseeable future.
For the benefits of this page we will soon be mounting the first of 3 Live Poets 30th Anniversary Specials with memorabilia and comments for your perusal.
We are also considering a Zoom session in the coming months.
Please stay tuned. We will continue to post news and info regarding the poetry scene from our and other sources as we have always done.
Thank you for your continued support of Live Poets at Don Bank.
