Win a Santa Cruise Experience with City Cruises York Poetry Competition
City Cruises York are proud to be working in conjunction with Mumbler to bring you our first “Children’s Poetry Competition”.
We know that some of you have a bit more time on your hands at the moment whilst you help the country by staying home and staying safe, so we wanted to bring you something creative to do.
The theme for our first ever poetry competition is “Rivers”. Maybe you can draw inspiration from a walk along the banks of the River Foss or the River Ouse in York, or even a cruise that you have taken with us? You could write about your favourite water birds, fish or other riverside wildlife. Or maybe motor boats, rowing boats, or house boats?
There are two age categories; “Under 8’s” and “8 to 11 year olds”. We would like you to illustrate your poem and it can be no longer than one side of A4. To enter you then need to take a picture of the poem and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first prize in each category is 2 Adult tickets and 2 child tickets to join our famous Santa Experience on either the 28th or 29th of November 2020. You can read a review of the City Cruises York Santa Experience here, and tickets for all 2020 dates are now on sale.
The second prize in each category is a 1 hour self drive motor boat hire to be enjoyed as a family (each boat can hold up to 8 people). This prize can be used on any operating date in 2020 or 2021. You can find out more about our Self Drive Boats here.
We will also award some family tickets for our daytime York City Cruises for any “highly commended” entries. The deadline to enter is Friday 15th of May.
The key points about the competition are:
2 categories – “Under 8” and then “8 to 11 years old”.
1st prize of Santa Experience tickets for 2 Adults and 2 Children for the 28th or 29th November 2020 for each category.
2nd prize of one hour red boat hire for each category.
Limit of one side of A4.
Poems to be hand written (with illustrations) and then uploaded as a photo/image.
Deadline 15th May 2020
We can’t wait to read your entries, Good Luck,
Hoping that all of our Mumbler friends are staying safe, City Cruises York
