We're delighted to announce that this year will see the return of the Allingham Songwriting Contest, as well as our Poetry and Flash Fiction competitions. More details will follow soon. 

The standard of entries in the songwriting contest was exceptionally high last year, and we hope to showcase a few of these on our YouTube channel in coming weeks.

In addition, we are working on a more permanent online home for the excellent stories and poems we have received over the years.

So, if you have a song, a poem or a story which you'd like to enter, it's time to start getting it in shape for entry. The songwriting contest will culminate in a live final as part of the festival in November, while the results of the poetry and fiction competitions will be released a couple of weeks in advance of the awards ceremony on the Saturday night of the festival weekend.
