Thatcham Festival Poetry Competition is now open!

The annual Thatcham Festival Poetry Competition is now open for entries again.  The competition is free and open to all and this year’s theme is ‘Shopping’.  There are categories for children aged under 11 and under 16, a separate category for adults and another for those who fancy their poetry as amusing!

There will be one winner of each category and those winners will be invited to read their poem at the Festival Finale on Friday 19th October and receive a small prize presented by the Mayor.  All entries will be collated into a souvenir booklet available to purchase for a £1 donation through the Festival in October.

Do you fancy putting pen to paper?  Download the flyer and form below which includes the all important competition rules, or pick up a copy from the Town Council Offices.
