A combination of award-winning bush poets, musical interludes and renowned country cooking is expected to draw a large crowd to the Clarence Town School of Arts Hall in June.

The Dungog-Clarence Town CWA will present “A Day In the Bush” on Friday, June 23.

Back by popular demand, this will be the 11th year of the event which was started by renowned local bush poet the late Bob Sanders.

Mr Sanders’ widow Lois Sanders from the Dungog-Clarence Town CWA said the event usually attracts more than 100 people.

“The event is one of the major fundraisers for our CWA branch, along with Quiltarama, and tickets are expected to sell quickly,” she said.

The event starts at 9am with morning tea with the entertainment kicking off at 9.30am and a full lunch – of good old fashioned CWA cooking of course – more entertainment and a lucky door prize.

Mrs Sanders said the event attracted award-winning and renowned bush poets who were always entertaining.

The Dungog Ukulele Group will perform, with a special musical performance once again by Bronwyn Hibbard.  

“In past years whole tables have been booked so that friends can enjoy the day together,” said Mrs Sanders.

Bookings are essential as the hall accommodation is limited, and all bookings must be received by June 16.
