Byron Writers Festival 2020 and COVID-19


The outlook for Byron Writers Festival 2020 changes daily, however in light of current public health advice regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Festival tickets will not be going on sale on 1 April as previously planned.

The safety of our Festival guests, audiences, volunteers and staff is our first priority, as is the urgent need for us to work together to protect the most vulnerable in our community during these difficult times.

Byron Writers Festival Board and staff are closely monitoring all COVID-19 developments and will rely on advice from the Federal and State governments’ information and recommendations for public safety.

We will update you on plans for this year’s Festival in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience.
