The Shaftesbury Tales Writing Competition

We are delighted to be hosting Treehouse Theatre Company in July for a performance of 'The Shaftesbury Tales'. In the meantime, join in the short story competition for a chance for your tale to become part of the performance. All details from 

Inspired by Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales', and the dastardly murder of teenage Saxon King Edward in Corfe, ‘The Shaftesbury Tales’ will walk from Corfe to Shaftesbury in July, village to village, stopping to perform hilarious and interactive family shows along the way, featuring murder, miracles and mischief from Dorset in the Dark Ages.

It all starts NOW with our short story writing competition! Open to everyone of any age living in Dorset. Cash prizes and plenty of glory. The winning Tales will be collected together and published as a booklet-programme: 'The Shaftesbury Tales', with some adapted into performance pieces for the touring show.
