Farleigh's 40th Art Contest

Tuesday 21st June

  • Competitions

The theme is - Your favourite birthday memory!

In celebration of Farleigh Hospice’s 40th birthday, we are calling on young budding artists from across mid Essex to take part in our Farleigh’s 40th Art Contest and find an imaginative way to draw or paint their favourite birthday memory.

Whether it is a memorable birthday party or day out, a special birthday gift or a birthday wish come true, we encourage your students to be as creative and expressive as possible!

There are four categories of entry:

  • Pre-school/Nursery
  • Primary -Reception to Year 3
  • Primary - Year 4 to 6
  • Secondary School - Year 7 to 11

Winners will be invited to attend our 40th Birthday Garden Party on Saturday, 17th September, where their winning entry will be added to our time capsule that will be placed in the ground within the hospice gardens in a special ceremony to mark our 40th Birthday at the Garden Party.

This is a great opportunity for your students to show off their artistic abilities and become a part of Farleigh’s history for the next 40 years and beyond, so please do encourage them to enter.

Schools will be notified of any winning entries from their students in the 1st week of September and an official invitation to our Summer Birthday Garden Party will be sent to each winning student to attend with their teachers, family and friends.

Those not taking part through their school can still take part by sending their entries directly to us at Farleigh Hospice, North Court Road, Chelmsford CM1 7FH or scanning them in and emailing
