Welcome to the 2017 Words in Winter Central Goldfields Victoria website and blog for all the events and latest updates on this coming festival season. This year the theme is “Origins” and runs from Friday 4th – Sunday 20th August. For the first time, Maryborough, Dunolly and Carisbrook will be joined by Pyrenees town Avoca, with an event or two to inspire in the wonderful new Avoca Arts and Gardens Precinct/Gallery 127 at the newly rescued Avoca Railway Station complex. With more than a dozen events planned, this season promises inspiration in the cold weather with cosy fireside evenings for all ages, exhibitions, performances, readings, and much more to warm up this winter. Follow this blog with your email address registered in the sidebar to keep up to date directly from your inbox, or simply save the link for future updates. See also the main Daylesford Head Office site http://www.wordsinwinter.com to see this region linked with Daylesford, Hepburn Springs, Clunes, Trentham, Newstead and Creswick. Programmes due for release late June, so look for these at your local arts outlets and Info Centres.
