Beaconsfield Connect Marquee

The grant will help fund a marquee at the Festival of Golden Words, a writer's festival, to boost the town's profile and economy by attracting more visitors.


Festival of Golden Words Inc. was established in 2013 to create an annual writers festival in Beaconsfield. In 2006 the town became nationally famous as a result of a mine disaster; in 2012 the mine at the centre of that fame closed. The funds will help expand the festival to lift the morale of the community, attract visitors to the town and connect the local community with a diverse range of writers discussing issues that affect them personally.
