KSP Open Day

Visit the beautiful Perth hills this May for the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers' Centre 2017 Open Day. This free event offers you the chance to learn about the Centre's activities and services as well as the literary and ANZAC history of this landmark character property.

The Perth hills region is renowned for its arts and culture scene. Discover the best of both worlds at this drop in event.

Browse market stalls, pick up information on services for writers, take a guided tour, buy a book from a local author, have a seat at the KSP café overlooking the charming heritage gardens, enjoy a cuppa and pair it with a delicious home-made treat from the charity bake sale. Sausages will be sizzling and feature readings and games on the lawn will be running throughout the day.

First built in 1910, this important landmark property was the former home of novelist Katharine Susannah Prichard and her husband Captain Hugo V.H. Throssell VC, the first WA World War I Victoria Cross recipient. For the past thirty years, the heritage-listed centre has run as a museum and vibrant not-for-profit support centre for writers.

This free event is open to all ages so come along to the 2017 KSP open day to unearth the writer in you!
