16 May - 22 May: A highlight of the Walsh Bay Cultural Calendar is the Sydney Writers Festival. The Festival brings a huge number of literary fans to the Precinct and provides an exciting week combining books, talks, lectures and great food.
My Perfect Festival is a great way to enjoy a selection of the Artistic Director’s Festival highlights and relax between events at the SWF private lounge at Walsh Bay.
Each day pass includes tickets to four Walsh Bay events handpicked by Jemma Birrell plus access to the SWF private lounge on Pier 2/3 with complimentary food, tea, coffee and soft drinks available throughout the day, and a complimentary drink at The Hemingway Bar. More ...
Nights at the Wharf: Pier 2/3 stays alive and after sundown the Festival gets a little bibliofriendly. From the outrageously educational Night of the Nerds to an interview with the inimitable Magda Szubanski and hilarious performances, poetry and discussions on the Club Stage, evenings are the time to let your hair down and get some literary healing. And be sure to join us for the adults-only Late Night Salon in The Hemingway Bar for uninhibited conversations with our most intrepid Festival guests.
