Hello 2016 – and welcome

We will be kicking off on Easter Sunday, 27th March – looking forward to a great season in 2016, bookings will be essential – hope you can join us.

Thankyou 2015

Poetry on a Plate has served its last rhyme filled plate for 2015 – Thanks to everyone who came, tried to come, or just thought about it – check in with us next year to see what is on offer – until then, travel safely.

No PoaP This Tuesday and Thursday

Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th the campfires will be cold and the aroma absent as we are unable to do Poetry on a Plate due to prior commitments elsewhere – we WILL be back on Sunday 30th (weather permitting) and so hope to see you then.

No Show Tuesday 18th August

We will not be operating Tuesday 18th August due to commitments elsewhere. We hope you will be able to join us on Thursday 20th instead? Apologies for any inconvenience.

No Show on Sunday 21st June

Sorry for the inconvenience folks, but Sarah and I will be attending a wedding over this weekend, and will not be able to do the show on Sunday 21st of June – we will be back in action on Tuesday 23rd June if you can stick around. 🙂


BOOKED OUT Sun 10th May !

Folks, we have a group booking on Sunday 10th of May that will fully occupy the site, meaning that we won’t be opening to the public. The next sitting will be Tuesday the 12th of May – we apologise for any inconvenience.

2015 Season Kicks off Sunday April 12th

Early rumours that we would kick off Poetry on a Plate at Easter have proved unfounded – it appears that events have overtaken us and we will not be able to start until Sunday 12th April. We hope to see as many there as possible on our opening night, and there will be PLENTY to do in Bourke over the Easter weekend. hully.

Poetry on a Plate wraps up for 2014

Well what a great year we have had at Poetry on a Plate. Plenty of fun and full bellies around the campfire – warm bodies, hearts and minds. Sarah and Hully would like to thank all those who have attended, left kind messages, kept in touch, shared photos, shared out story, or just checked in an out quietly. We will be back in early April – if you are planning a trip, remember we operate outside of ‘daylight savings’ hours – so when the clock goes back to normal, we go to work – April through to October. Check in later for the new YouTube video we have just produced, and please feel free to contact us for your 2015 bookings !

No Show – Tuesday 2nd September 2014

Please note there will NOT be a show on Tuesday 2nd September 2014 – sorry for any inconvenience. We hate having to do this, however, we just cant get around another important commitment. On the bright side we are hosting two extra Friday night shows on 5th September & 19th September – so if you are passing through Bourke on these dates – feel free to come & join us around the fire.
