The weekend in pictures

Sessions and their audiences

We listened, we laughed, we cried. An unforgettable weekend of conversation and storytelling for all who attended.

Faces of the Festival

An eye-catching mix of people from all walks of life. It was a delight to see people of all ages mixing it up over the three days. Testament to the power of storytelling.

A site for sore eyes

Our stunning Festival site shone under a brilliant sun for three days. Enveloped by nature and adorned with an array of captivating sculptures, it was a treat to see patrons kicking back and enjoying the greens as much as the sessions.

Kids Big Day Out

Festival Sunday saw Tristan Bancks, Peter Helliar, Hilary Badger, Isobelle Carmody, Lucas Proudfoot, Sally Rippin and Richard Roxburgh entertain a tent packed full of excited young fans (and a few older ones!) at Kids Big Day Out.

Our volunteers

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This outstanding Festival is possible because of you! Just a few of the (many) friendly faces that we are so proud of.

A huge thank you to our official photographers Kate Holmes, Kurt Petersen, Sarah Gray and Lyn McCarthy for capturing the magic of the 21st Byron Writers Festival.

    Another great festival – thank you over and over again. We come up from Tamworth every year – 8 of us – and this year I had a fractured ankle and was hopping around on a frame. Your volunteers were so helpful and i was pleased that the weather was so beautiful – not like last years rain!! More chairs made it much easier to get a seat wherever we wanted to go – again beautiful food – amazing speakers – so hard to decide how to hear all the ones I wanted. We’ll be back next year and as we speak with friends here there’ll be others coming too!
