Byron Bay Writers’ Festival will not be making use of the town’s new Sports and Cultural Complex at Ewingsdale in the near future.
The organisation’s chairman, Chris Hanley, believes noise problems at the centre would make its use by the festival unviable.
‘The area that’s designated for a festival like ours is probably not perfect for a festival of our size. But I certainly see how it would be… very good for other types of festivals,’ he told ABC radio this morning.
He said the festival would continue to run from its present home at the old Byron Bay Beach Resort site at Belongil.
