It’s Competition Time!



The Big 900. Story Writing Challenge.

Children all over the UK are invited to join in celebrating Leeds Castle’s 900th birthday by writing a short story about Castles and Time Travel. The two winning stories picked by the judges, including tv presenter and children’s author Clare Balding, will go into a time capsule to be buried by the winning children and HRH Princess Alexandra and only opened again in 100 years’ time!

There are two age brackets: 5 to 9 years and 10 to 13 years. The winning children will be invited to a very special Awards Day at Leeds Castle in 2019 to meet Clare Balding and will win a basket of prizes. They will also be invited to take part in the ‘time capsule’ ceremony with Royalty later in the summer.

Deadline for entry: 5th March 2019 at 12pm
