Each month, three of the region’s most cherished singer/songwriters will take to the stage together, and share in an evening of music, stories and great tucker. In the traditional style of the ‘songwriter circle’, artists take it in turns to discuss and perform their material in a receptive and intimate setting.

The first of these shows is set to be an absolute treat, featuring the amazing talents of Sara Tindley, Garrett Kato and Tim Stokes, along with special guests Belle Hendrik and Charlie Keller.

Throw in Bangalow BBQ’s hickory smoked ribs, Bexhill store’s famous veggie curries and samosas, alongwith indulgent goodies and desserts from Feather & Lace Creative Cakes, and what more could you want?

Entry is $15. Bring a blanket and come get cosy.
