Byron Writers Festival and Stone & Wood look after locals


For the second year, Byron Writers Festival is looking after Northern Rivers locals with discounted Sunday Locals’ Passes, proudly supported by Stone & Wood. The discounted ticket is for entry to the Festival on Sunday 4 August and is priced at $80, a saving of $55 on the regular ticket price. Ticket holders have the freedom to wander between six stages, choosing from sessions spanning topics such as the environment, social issues, the arts, science, crime, poetry, politics, memoir and fiction. The offer is exclusively available to residents of the Byron, Ballina, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed council areas.

Stone & Wood’s Jasmin Daly says ‘Byron Writers Festival is such an awesome cultural event for the Northern Rivers region and we feel it’s important that as many people from the local community are able to attend as possible. We hope that these Sunday Locals passes bring familiar faces young and old to enjoy a day of deep thinking and conversation.’
