Golden Bay Live Poets

Golden Bay Live Poets meet monthly at The Mussel Inn, Onekaka. Their next meeting is on Thursday 17 September at 7.30 pm. The guest poet will be Gary Elford.

A Christchurch-based poet and entertainer, Gary has been writing and performing poetry for the last 25 years. Born and raised on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, he was exposed early to the joys of bush poetry through the writing of Lawson, Kendall, and of course Banjo Peterson. He has self-published four books of poetry, in a range of styles from epic historical pieces to humorous stories of people and situations.

The evening begins with an open mic session; everyone is welcome to attend or participate. Bring a poem, a song or a story. Koha entry. For further information please contact Mark Raffills at
