Welcome to Reigate and Banstead Writes

Reigate and Banstead Writes launched in 2017. Originally, a writing competition for the borough’s young people. It has developed into a small but mighty review site. and aims to celebrate writing, music and the local cultural scene .

We won the ‘Best Community Initiative” at the Essential Surrey Awards in 2019. This award was voted for by members of the community and we are immensely grateful for all the support and votes!
