The Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane is inviting students to get involved and be creative by entering an Arts and Poetry Competition, seeking art (in any form, for example drawing, photography, sculptures, music) and/or poetry submissions inspired by Basing House and/or the English Civil War.
Subject to coronavirus restrictions being lifted, the winner(s) will be invited to join the Mayor at a special opening of the English Civil War Art and Poetry Exhibition at Basing House. They will also receive a Mayor’s plaque and an annual family pass to Basing House. The winners’ schools will also each receive a free educational visit to Basing House, potentially including a travel bursary (subject to terms and conditions).
All entries need to be submitted by Friday 12 March 2021, and judging will take place on Friday 19 March 2021.
