at Regent Theatre

Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards Dinner

Most of the time reading and writing are solitary activities. But this is the night where that changes. This is the night for dinner and celebration with a literary flavour. It’s probably time to get your nose out of those books.

Hosted by the incomparable Casey Bennetto and presented by Ted Baillieu MLA, Premier and Minister for the Arts, this is our night to honour our finest writers.

Celebrate with us in the Plaza Ballroom of the Regent Theatre.
