The annual Poet’s Breakfast has become a key part of the Christmas in Cooroy celebrations.  This is the fourth year for the breakfast and it seems the poets just get better every year!    

“Not only do you get a fantastic buffet breakfast to start the day, but you’ll also get your share of laughter too because these poets are entertaining,” said event manager, Danielle Taylor.

MC for the event, popular hinterland poet Ian Mackay has mustered up some of last year’s favourites plus a new face from Mapleton.

ABC’s evergreen “poet-in residence” and master of the short poem, Harry Donnelly will be there as will last year’s new face, the very popular, “Irish Joe” Lynch.

The poets are delighted to be joined this year by Robin “Archie” Archbold. Originally from Northern New South Wales, Archie has taken out the coveted Woodford Poetry Slam and has regularly been a finalist in the Nimbin World Poetry Cup. Now resident in Mapleton, Archie is a spirited performer who never fails to impress.

Each poet has developed his own, quite distinct, style in both writing and performing but together they combine to produce a cohesive show that evolves as the morning unfolds.

Tickets must be pre-purchased via the Cooroy Hotel for only $30 which includes a hearty breakfast and a few hours of entertainment by some of the best local poets around.   

The Cooroy Poet’s Breakfast is at 8am on Saturday 3rd December - phone 5447 6355 or visit the Cooroy Hotel to book.
