Your Living History Poem Activity

Bring history alive with words and pictures by taking part in our 'Your Living History Poem' activity to celebrate National Poetry Day.

Write a poem inspired by any object in Andover Museum's collection.

  • Any age can write a poem, inspired by any object in our collection
  • You could write a ballad, sonnet, free verse, limerick, the form is up to you. All we ask is that it's printed in at least 14pt and fits on one side of A4 paper.
  • If you'd prefer to draw, then draw a cartoon (maximum four frames), or combine it with a poem. The same rules apply as the poem as above.
  • How to enter: Please collect an entry form from Andover Museum from 18 June, at 6 Church Close, Andover SP10 1DP and return to us via email or in person by Wednesday 28 August, 2019.
