In the lead up to Barry Jones’ 89th birthday celebration in 2021 (bookings for this year’s event can be made HERE), revisit the online event that was held for this extraordinary man in 2020. This recording was taken from a live Zoom event that was broadcast on 11 October 2020.

Over the years, the celebration of Barry Jones’ birthday has become a marvellous opportunity for us to get together and indulge in an evening of poetry and music performed by his friends. An extraordinarily well-informed lover of the arts (and of so much else), Barry lets us know his favourite poems but is not averse to surprises, presented by his friends in a program curated by Board Member Julian Burnside.

Last year’s program included a performance by Australian singer-songwriter, Paul Kelly, joined by a superb line up of readers including Julian Burnside, Emily Goddard, Brian Walters and Arnold Zable. The afternoon was completed with special guests Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia and Nobel Laureate Peter Doherty engaging in lively conversation with Barry regarding his life in politics and science.
