Please note that the Kurilpa Cup will not be held at

our regular venue this year.

Due to long awaited renovations to the old Croquet Club

in Musgrave Park finally commencing, the Kurilpa Poets will be

“Cultural Couch Surfers” for the next few months,

and thus popping up in strange and unexpected places.

(For example we will be appearing at the Kurilpa Hall

for our 29th March show.)

Discussions are currently being conducted with a number of suitable local venues and we expect to be able to confirm our

location for the Kurilpa Cup on 22nd February

before the end of this week.

In the meantime; Polish those Poems!

More details will be appearing in the Water-Rat Gazette
in coming days. Stay tuned..
