A once-in-50-years event.

To mark the 50th Anniversary of the Robert Burns Fellowship at the University of Otago, past Fellows from the earliest to the newest have been gathered together to present a literary weekend without peer. Don’t say you were never there. It only happens twice in a century.

SESSION ONE: 11.30am – c. 12.30pm
Burns Poets in Performance
Five of the best entertain for an hour - or for as long as it takes. David Eggleton, Nic Ascroft, Cilla McQueen, John Dickson and Sam Hunt.

SESSION TWO: 2.00pm – 3.00pm
Fifty Years of Theatre
How has New Zealand drama developed since the Burns Fellowship began? Fifty years of change in theatre, radio and television. Paula Boock, Roger Hall and Jo Randerson with Michael Noonan.

SESSION THREE: 3.30pm – 4.30pm
Here At the End of the World
What is distinctive about our literature? Who is reading it anywhere else? What responsibility does a writer have to the notion of a New Zealand literature? Catherine Chidgey, Laurence Fearnley and Elspeth Sandys with James Norcliffe.
