The Supper Room at the stately Kensington Town Hall will be the 2019 venue for all of MWT’s Monthly Workshops, while our traditional meeting venue of La Mama Courthouse will be used for the presentation of our new Public Readings series. Working across the two venues means we can offer our members more opportunities for the development and showcasing of their work, and will allow writers in another part of town to take advantage of all that MWT has to offer.

Kensington Town Hall is a beautiful, centrally located venue on leafy Bellair Street. It has state-of-the-art amenities and excellent disability access and facilities. Here are the details:
