On an 'end of week' night close to equinox and solstice events (or thereabouts), Gallery 2 at NEA, 122 Bridge St East, Benalla becomes the venue for a poetry performance. We are coming up to the summer solstice and are having a poetry session at NEA on Thursday 20th December from 7 to 9 pm! Whether you are an experienced reciter, a beginner or would like to give it a go, come along, bring your own work or poems that you love and get involved. Tea and coffee will be provided, and perhaps you would like to bring a plate of home baked goodies to share. Also a gold coin or pinkie to cover heating and power would be welcome. The session will begin at 7 pm and run to 9 pm.
(Please note - this event was originally advertised for Friday 21 December but clashed with a local music event so was altered to Thursday 20December.)

‘Armchair Poets’ – monthly sessions on the 4th Sunday in non - equinox and solstice months
A drop in 'Armchair Poets' session for poets and poetry lovers is held at NEA on the 4th Sunday of non equinox/solstice months from 2 to 4 pm. This is not a performance poetry session, but a chance to sit around with other poets and poetry lovers to share, workshop or just talk about poetry.
