Actors Brian Capron, of Coronation Street fame, and Susan Thacker will be reading out entries at the Anderida Writers Short Story and Poetry competition which will be held in the Garden Suite of the Hydro Hotel, Eastbourne, on Tuesday next, October 11th, at 7.30pm.
There will be cash prizes of £60 for the winner of the short story section and £50 for the poetry section. Excellent additional prizes are afternoon teas for two at top Eastbourne hotels, the Langham Hotel, the Hydro Hotel, as well as the popular Haberdasher’s Kitchen on the first floor of Close & Hamblin. In addition the delightful Café Old Town in Star Road is offering a lunchtime treat for two.
A £20 Waterstones voucher has been donated by competition secretary Francis Wait.
Anderida Writers chairman Tony Flood says: “Members present will vote on the entries read by Brian and Susan. Guests will also be welcome to attend. The Garden Suite is an ideal venue, with plenty of room for social distancing.”
