STORY SUBMISSIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED - THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED
Beverley has long been a town of sanctuary since the Middle Ages. Famous sanctuary stones stand at its edges and a towering Minster at its heart, marking an ancient boundary line where fugitives could seek shelter from the law for up to 40 days. Today, Beverley remains a town of sanctuary but of a different kind - as a safe place to live and work; as a place to escape away to on holiday; as a place of creative sanctuary - a town filled with arts and culture.
Beverley Puppet Festival and Beverley Minster invite you to share your memories and thoughts of Beverley to be used as inspiration for a digital puppetry film commission, which will be exhibited in Summer 2021 in the Minster. Did you grow up here? Do you live here now? Do you travel to Beverley for work? Do you go to school here? What is your fondest memory of Beverley? Where do you see Beverley in 20 years? We’re interested in hearing your story of Beverley.
What will happen to my story? You story may be used as inspiration by a commissioned artist, who will be producing a short puppetry film that celebrates the story of Beverley that will be displayed online and in Beverley Minster June-July 2021. We may share your stories on our website or social media channels but will not include any provided contact details in these instances.
To enter the competition to win 2 x 2022 festival passes, please make sure to have told us your name and contact details through one of the three methods listed above. The best story submission and competition winner will be chosen in May 2021 - all ages welcome to submit! We won't pass your contact details onto any third parties or add you to any marketing lists. The festival pass prize is dependent on us securing funding for the 2022 festival.
