2017 Clunes Booktown Festival – Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th May

Clunes Booktown

저희 웹 사이트에 오신 것을 환영합니다.

The charming Goldfields village of Clunes is famous for its range of bookshops, set in a heritage rich landscape. From the collectables to the bargains, from the small shops to the large shops stocking thousands of titles, we offer it all. Clunes is located 36 km north of Ballarat (30 minutes by car), and 142 km north-west of Melbourne (90 minutes by car). Clunes Booktown is a member of the International Organisations of Booktowns.

The next Festival is scheduled for 6th and 7th May 2017. The 10th Anniversary 2016 Clunes Booktown Festival, themed ‘Journeys through time and place’, was held 30th April and 1st May 2016. Our special guests included Australian luminaries Hon. Anna Bligh and Richard Frankland MA. We had over 50 book traders, 50 authors speaking, 9 general entertainment acts, 8 educational acts (4 for kids and 4 for teens), various kids activities, an Exhibition in the old Wesley Bluestone focused on our theme, plus 90 minutes with ‘Newstead Tattoo Presents…’ and last, but not least, good food and books galore. It was tremendous fun! Thank you to all who joined us. The $10 weekend pass included access to all book-sellers, author talks, entertainment, activities and historic buildings. It was superb value for money.

If you have an interest in visiting Clunes throughout the year, consider planning to attend one of the Booktown on Sunday sessions. This is a series of writer talks which occurs on the third Sunday of each month at 2 pm in The Warehouse, Fraser St, Clunes.  This monthly event occurs March to December each year.
