Feel like there’s a bit of Banjo Patterson running in your veins? Or perhaps you’ve just got the urge to share some rhymes you’ve been cooking up for a while.
If so, the Bush Poet event at next weekend’s Bangalow Show could be for you.
Sponsored by the Bungalow Herald, the event will take place on Saturday November 16 at 2.30pm in the village green next to the Moller pavilion.
‘There’s a $50 first prize and a glorious winner’s sash,’ the host of the event Angus Thurgate said.
‘It’s open to anyone who thinks they can write and deliver a three minute poem containing the word ‘tree’,’ he said.
Thurgate will be joined this year by the formidable judging panel of Hannah Ross, Greg Nash and Ben Alcock.
The event is part of an action-packed show that includes all the old favourites including the boot toss, doggy high jump, egg and spoon races and Steve’s Reptile World.
