Thatcham Festival Poetry Competition – The Great Outdoors

Staff collating entries for the annual Thatcham Festival Poetry Competition have had to get off to an early start this year as entries from Kennet School pupils have already started to arrive for the ‘under 16s’ category.  This year’s theme is ‘The Great Outdoors’ so perhaps you might like to head on out yourself and get inspired.

There are four categories: general, humorous, under 11s and under 16s.  A winner of each category will be awarded a National Book Token by the Mayor and given the opportunity to read their poem at the Festival Finale event in October.

Entries are welcome until 18th September 2017 and competition rules apply. Download the entry form below or get in touch with staff at the Council Offices if you have any queries on T: 01635 863592.
