Calling young poets! Help us celebrate the beauty of autumn.

The Royal Parks are developing a new storytelling and learning area at Brompton Cemetery and we’re inviting children aged 7-11 to enter our autumn-themed poetry competition. Words from the winning entry will be carved into paving in the storytelling area.

The Details

Theme: At Brompton Cemetery we love autumn! We’re looking for autumn-themed poems inspired by the sounds, smells and sights of autumn walks in nature.

Format: Any poetry form will be accepted up to a limit of 20 lines. Extracts may be selected if an entire poem is too long for a paving stone.

Submission: All entries to be sent to with the subject line Poetry competition by midnight on Friday 13th November 2020.

Judging: The competition will be judged by interim Chair for the Friends of Brompton Cemetery Elise Ormerod and Brompton Cemetery and Brompton Business Development and Cemetery Services Manager Charli Carver.
