If you love a good Friday night full of interesting talks, videos, movies, poetry, plays, acoustic music, food and drink, fun and frivolity, at a budget price, then it’s all happening now – well, on Friday.
The NOW Club is a new monthly event in Byron Bay designed to become a meeting place for Byron Bay residents looking for something different on a Friday night.
One of the organisers, playwright and philosopher Chris Willmot says the group is kicking off this Friday with a celebration of World Poetry Day.
‘We have variety of local poets including local poetry slam champ, David Hallett, and outstanding poets from around Australia and the world, using our new projector and PA system and big screen.
‘We’ll start with a bracket of slinky songs from the music trio Honey Blue, then poetry plus loads of contemporary humorous, quirky and critical local and international videos, food and drink, as we are licenced.
‘Next month’s event will be a double bill screening with the Byron premiere of two critically acclaimed films Pilliga Rising and a rescreening of the fabulous Murder On The Reef on Friday 6.30, 12 April.
Opening night kicks off at The Marvel Hall, Marvel Street, Byron Bay at 6.30pm on Friday 22 March.
