Come and be nourished by the ripe fruit and rhymes at July’s Dangerously Poetic event, the latest in a long menu of ingenious twists on the genre.

The northern rivers poetry group’s reading on the theme of food, titled Tasting it Twice, will be held at the Bangalow Heritage House on Sunday, July 13.

Share your favourite poem on food (either your own or one you love) during the Open section where readers will compete for our inaugural performance cup!

The featured readers are food and poetry connoisseurs, Ruth Langford and Carl Taylor (pictured).

You can also enjoy original songs by Cassie Rose accompanied by Alex McLeod.

And food carver Gitta Radau will demonstrate carving a melon or pumpkin and creating edible art!

Then feast on the sweet and savoury treats catered by Bangalow Heritage House Tea Room.

All are welcome to join in the fun, from 3pm to 5pm, for a mere $15 (or $12 for DP members) – including refreshments!

The tea room is at the corner of Ashton and Deacon streets, Bangalow.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Aged Care Fail

Our aged care system is broken. We didn’t need a Royal Commission to tell us that many of our old people have been abused by the system that is supposed to care for them. But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
