Brighton Festival 2017Public booking opens: Fri 24 Feb, 9am

Peacock Poetry Prize

Calling all young people aged 8 -19! Unleash your creativity and submit a poem or three to our annual poetry competition. This year’s theme is our Guest Director Kate Tempest’s choice of Everyday Epic. From a pebbled beach to a stranger’s smile, from a sporting milestone to a quiet read, we invite you to reflect on the small observations and achievements of our daily lives. Finalists and their friends and relatives are invited to a prize giving reception in Central Brighton.  This year we are also delighted to be presenting some of the poems in Hove Park and Preston Park as part of a Poems in the Park project.

For more info about submitting a poem see here

Deadline for entries: Mon 3 Apr, 5pm
Prize giving ceremony: Fri 26 May, 5pm
