This year’s Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival concert will be held on Friday June 9 from 7pm at the Henry Lawson High School auditorium. Tickets are available from May18 from Louisas Locker.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and include a delicious homemade supper catered by the Henry Lawson High School P&C.

The concert will feature local school choirs, bands and students with a variety of talents. The festival concert is a terrific start to the festival weekend and provides a great showcase of artistic skill in regional NSW.

Book your tickets now to ensure you don’t miss out of this fabulous local event.  

Other highlights at this year’s festival will be Official Guest Tara Moss.

Tara Moss is an author, journalist, TV documentary presenter, speaker, human rights advocate and anti-cyberbullying campaigner. It’s a great honour to have a guest of such note in Grenfell as part of this year’s celebrations.

Be sure to say hello to Tara while she is in Grenfell.

This year’s procession is aiming to be the biggest and best ever with all organisations and business encouraged to participate for this momentous year- the 60th consecutive Festival and 150 years since Henry Lawson was born on the Grenfell goldfields.

Be part of history and make sure you enter a float in this year’s special 60th amond anniversary of the Henry Lawson Festival.

The procession coordinator would appreciate it if procession entry forms are submitted by June 2 although entries will still be taken on the day in Short Street.

Entries are still coming in steadily for this year’s photography exhibition, this year in a new venue, the Court House on Camp Street.

The former CWA rooms will be the home of the pop up Devonshire Tea Café.

This has been a hit for the last two years providing delicious food and seating in a warm room out of the weather.
