Elmbridge Moving Art
Artists aged 15+ are invited to submit one piece of art to be exhibited at an exhibition celebrating the wealth of artistic talent in Elmbridge. Successful submissions will be displayed from 7 August 2019 in the Robert Phillips Gallery at Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre, Walton-on-Thames, before touring other spaces in Elmbridge. Approved applicants will be entered into an Elmbridge Artists Directory.
Artists who wish to participate are invited to email a photo of their work to firstname.lastname@example.org together with a submission form by 1 April 2019 at the very latest.

14th Elmbridge Literary Competition 2018 - Winners
The 2018 competition was run by R C Sherriff Trust in partnership with Elmbridge Borough Council and Sampson Low Publishers. In 2018, we looked for scary short stories or poems about 'things that go bump in the night' and that could send 'a shiver down the spine'. There was a record number of participants with over 300 entries received. The full list of winners and highly commended and commended entries are available to view on the R C Sherriff Trust website. All 1st prize winners in the adult category had their work printed as chapbooks by Sampson Low. Small and affordable forms of literature, chapbooks historically used to be sold on the streets, and covered a wide range of subjects
