Call to get creative to celebrate Letchworth’s heritage

WHAT do you think makes Letchworth GC special?

That is the question Letchworth Arts Centre is asking the town’s teenagers in a poster competition to help celebrate the Garden City’s unique heritage.

The competition invites 11 to 18-year-olds to create posters for display across the town to help promote the massive range of events taking place between March and November, including a two-day summer festival in Broadway Gardens and Leys Square in July.

The events, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will link Letchworth GC with other places across the country that influenced, or were influenced by, the Garden City movement, and will include coach trips and guided tours.

There are six �50 prizes to be won in the poster competition, to cover different age groups.

Entrants are asked to consider the special history of the town and create an A3 poster about what they think makes Letchworth GC special. Submissions must be hard copy but there is no restriction on method or material, and they can be digital or in any scannable material.

The winning posters will be reproduced in large format and put up across the town.
