10 June - 12 June

Get ready for the Bellingen Readers & Writers Festival!  This great event will be held at the Bellingen Showground over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.

With some truly outstanding guests locked away, this is not an event to be missed. You’ll find some of the biggest names in books, along with ground-breaking debut authors and stories that will sweep you off your feet.

Some of the amazing wordsmiths in attendance include:

  • Norman Swan
  • Claire G. Coleman
  • Dick Smith
  • Charlotte McConaghy
  • Tim Dean
  • Sofie Laguna

The Poetry Slam is back and given the popularity of our Local Author Tent in 2021, the festival will be introducing a new Local Author Marquee. Sanctus Brewery will return with a fancy, upgraded bar area, while the best food and coffee in the land will be available right in the heart of the festival.
