The streets of York will come alive with the sound of jazz these September school holidays, as the genre returns to the region for The York Festival presented by LiveLighter. The annual two-week festival boasts a jam-packed program of performances, public talks, workshops, and demonstrations held in and around the town from 25 September to 10 October 2021.

Across the Festival’s second weekend, literary lovers won’t want to miss the Writers Program, curated by The West Australian’s Will Yeoman. The program features a host of renowned Western Australian authors speaking at intimate talks and group panels about their works. “York has always been special to me. I grew up there and have been a regular visitor ever since. I’ve loved books for at least as long. I was very excited to have this opportunity to combine both in a full day of conversations with, and readings by, some of WA’s best established and emerging authors, poets and illustrators,” said Mr Yeoman.

A major highlight of the Writers Program will be the opening event with Travel Editor, journalist, photographer, award-winning novelist and spoken-word performer Stephen Scourfield, twice voted Australia’s best travel writer, and colleague Will Yeoman as they tell the story of some of the world’s great rivers including York’s Avon River in words and music at a special breakfast event.
