2. Rhys Darby – Saturday 12 August – Claudelands

Rhys Darby’s shows are always a mix of astute observations and stand-up cocooned in a fantastical story that takes his audience on a journey through the ridiculous to the downright silly.  This show promises to be no different.

3. Travel Writers – Saturday 12 August – Lido Cinema

Travel writers Graham Reid, Chris van Ryn, Elisabeth Easther and Jill Malcolm will talk with chair Gail Pittaway about their writing and where they are published.
