#Blackpoolrhyme – Poetry Competition

We are delighted to announce the launch of Blackpool FC Community Trust’s ‘poetry competition’ #Blackpoolrhyme

We want children, parents, and even grandparents to think about what makes Blackpool great and why you are proud to be associated with such a unique town. 

The Poem can be any length and any style, and ALL standards are welcome… 

Just use your imagination to write a unique poem that relates to our wonderful town.

To help you along the way here are some of the things your poem could contain:

  • Blackpool FC – Memorable games, players, activities with the Community Trust or even the new owner
  • The Beach – Wading in the sea, building sandcastles or playing beach games
  • Attractions – Trips to the Pleasure Beach, Tower, Sandcastle or the Illuminations etc.
  • The Resort Town – Donkeys, trams, piers and holiday makers

The competition will run from now until the end of April 2020 and will be split into three categories; 

  1. Primary school aged children (5 to 11 years)
  2. Secondary school aged children (12 to 17 years)
  3. Adults (18+)

What are the prizes for the winners? 

  • Winners will receive a Blackpool FC goody bag
  • We will arrange for a Blackpool FC player to be filmed reading your poem and for it to be published across our media platforms
  • Your entry will also be printed in a Blackpool FC match-day programme and you will be invited as a guest to attend a match

How do I enter? 

Simple. You can submit your entry via email at  jen.crofts@bfcct.co.uk or through our social media platforms via a ‘Direct Message’

Even better, if you can film yourself reading your poem, we will try to share as many as we can.

Go on… Give it a go!
