Calling young poets! Help us celebrate the wonder of winter.

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 winter-themed poetry competition. Words from the winning entry will be carved into stone and placed in the storytelling area.

The Details

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.
