About this event

Join OLD JACK, the Aussie Gleeman, for your renewable energy - high voltage, low emissions, clean and efficient, ample storage, no blackouts (we all hope). While you explore with him the right word for the right occasion - give me your word, word for word, word of mouth, a play on words, the tyranny of words, your favourite four-letter word, even the word of god and many more - experience the power of his stories, old and new, from far and wide, in poetry and prose - tales to delight, entertain, enlighten and energize you. For remember always, a word in the head is worth two in the book.
Or, as Sir Lancelot might have said -
"I've never lost in contest or game, I'm simply the best by far,
When words are tossed, 'tis always the same, one verse and au revoir."
