Our annual poetry competition for all primary and secondary schools within the local partnership produces fantastic, high-quality writing that deserves an audience. This year's theme for the poems is "belonging". 

Join us at this special ceremony to celebrate the talent of our young authors. The prize giving is hosted by Jim Hopcroft, poet and landlord of The Chequers, a Festival venue, and keen supporter of all things literary.
