From a pebbled beach to a stranger’s smile, from a sporting milestone to a quiet read, Brighton Festival invites you to reflect on the small observations and achievements of our daily lives which we piece together in order to celebrate and share our common humanity.
Brighton Festival are currently looking for submissions from young people to enter this year’s Peacock Poetry Prize. The theme of this year’s contest is ‘Everyday Epic’, in celebration of Brighton Festival 2017’s Guest Director Kate Tempest. The competition is divided into four age groups, ages 8-10, 11-13, 14-16 and 17-19, and four prizes will be given in each of these categories, with one winner being announced by our Guest Judge on the night of the event.
