We offer students of the performing arts the opportunity to perform in front of an extremely highly qualified judge who then issues a ‘critique’. A second line would be that, armed with this critique, the student discusses with their teacher any future course of study.

The City of Sale Eisteddfod Society Inc meets on the first Tuesday of the month (except July) and welcomes new members.

The Gippsland Bush Poets meet every six weeks at the Rosedale Hotel on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. The club has thirty members and is one of six Victorian Bush Poetry Clubs. Our aim is to keep alive the tradition and heritage of this form of Australian entertainment.
Not all of our members are Poets, some just come along to our meetings and functions to enjoy the comradeship and involvement of the club. After a formal meeting that usually takes 1 hour the members entertain with Bush Poetry. It is a great place and opportunity for
the novice poet to start and for the more seasoned Poets to try new works. The club has a quarterly newsletter and membership costs $20 a year. The Gippsland Bush Poets will be running the Victorian Bush Poetry State Championships in Stratford in October this year.
