2021 round of the annual writing cancelled due to ongoing pandemic.
It is with regret, sadness and an inky tear or two, that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Reigate and Banstead Writes. Since launching way back in 2017, it has gathered pace, thanks to the enthusiasm of our super creative young writers and all the glorious support from judges, locals, The Belfry Shopping Centre, Reigate and Banstead Council, schools and others. Thank you all.
These scattered times have put too many obstacles in place, not least school closures. We shall miss reading the joyful, funny and mysterious stories and tales our youngsters write each year.
Until 2022. In the meantime. Keep writing and check out 2020’s winning entries here. as a reminder of what came before.
Reigate and Banstead Writes is the annual writing competition for children aged 10-14. It also, via the website, hosts an arty review blog and articles on the locality.
