Fundraising support key to success of festival

Augusta Margaret River Times

Margaret River Readers and Writers Festival is calling on the community to support its 10th anniversary by going along to upcoming fundraising events.

Tulip Fever, a film adapted from a historical novel, will play at the Margaret River Cultural Centre on January 14, and on January 24 Vancouver-based author, journalist, blogger and broadcaster Robin Esrock will be talking about travel based around his latest book, The Great Global Bucket List.

Festival director Kerrie Yabsley said the events presented the opportunity for residents to be entertained and inspired while supporting the festival.

“While the festival will again bring an array of thought-provoking writers to the region, the importance of these fundraising events can’t be underestimated,” she said.

“With added costs this year, due to the relocation of the festival because of the cultural centre upgrade, it’s more important than ever before to garner community support and funds in the lead-up to the event.”

Tickets for the screening are $20 and tickets for Esrock’s seminar are only $10.

Tickets for both events can be purchased from mrrwfestival. com/whats-on, by phone on 9758 7316 or in person at the Marga-ret River Cultural Centre Box Office.

All funds will contribute directly to the 2018 Margaret River Readers and Writers Festival.
