CLARENCE VALLEY CONSERVATORIUM

PETER has a workshop this weekend in GRAFTON.

JUNIOR DRAMA WORKSHOP FINAL PLAY REHEARSAL.

CLARENCE VALLEY CONSERVATORIUM is at 8 VILLIERS STREET IN GRAFTON. We saw it when we did our field trip earlier in the year. At the time the rains were reminiscent of Henry Kendall’s WAITING ON THE RAFT poem which tells of a much earlier Grafton flood. As a consequence we caught a mere glimpse of the Conservatorium as we familiarised ourselves with the Jacaranda City. Being from Bellingen, I had always looked upon Grafton with a neighbourly disdain but the Field Trip brought it into a new light for both of us. Now we look forward to another night in the caravan and some more exploration of the Clarence.

PETER is hosting the Workshop and observing the final dress rehearsals for next week’s plays. Bronwen Berman is the Drama Tutor. We haven’t met her yet but Grafton – here we come ! Perhaps another Indian Meal. Good Vodafone reception for the mobile Broadband and a train trip south to Urunga for me while the Workshop is on.

WHARF AT GRAFTON

I am including the  GATEWAY VILLAGE information for Other PhD students on restricted income – and in fact for anyone who would like a surprisingly decent place to stay at amazing rates. We return to our van of choice ! Perhaps to swim ! Perhaps to use the Internet ! Feed wild birds ! Just to enjoy ourselves ! Gateway makes Byron look tacky.
