Poetry Prize Evening - Sponsored by Banstead Coaches Limited. Joshua Seigal, Adjudicator

We present the results and readings of our Festival Society Schools Poetry Competition: prizewinners of each of three age groups between 5 and 15 will read their poems and receive signed books.

Our adjudicator, Joshua Seigal, is a poet, performer and educator who uses poetry to develop literary skills and inspire confidence and creativity. He has performed his poetry at places such as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the South Bank Centre, the 2012 London Olympics and the London Festival of Education, and has led poetry workshops at the National Portrait Gallery, the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and the V&A Museum of Childhood, as well as at schools across the country.
