In celebration of Lord Burghley’s 500th Anniversary in 2020, Burghley would like children to create their own piece of historical writing using no more than 500 words.
There are three age categories, 6 – 8 years, 9 – 11 years, 12-14 years. No matter what their ability or background, we would love to see as many children getting involved and we’re most of all, looking forward to reading their individual pieces.
Tell us about your favourite historical character, setting or location. This is the golden opportunity to show off your historical knowledge. Get as creative as you like to be in with a chance to win these amazing prizes:
To be in with a chance of winning these fantastic prizes, make sure your submission has been entered by the 8th May. Each entry will be judged by our dedicated education team. Please remember to note down your age with your full name. You can either send your short stories to ‘email@example.com’ or to postal address: Education Office, Burghley, Stamford, PE9 3JY
