Holkham Stories Competition

In these strange times of isolation, many of us are turning to happy memories or day-dreaming of making new ones. To celebrate ‘National Share a Story’ month this May, we are encouraging you to turn these into your own Holkham Story. Be it real or fictional; hilarious, halcyon or even horrendous, we’d love to read them!

Our Holkham Stories Competition is open to all, the only restriction is a maximum of 300 words. There’s a prize too - we are offering the winner a Holkham Hamper of goodies worth £100 to help you to relax and unwind with a good book, as well as your story being showcased across our social media channels and website.

Your submissions may be shared on social media and on our website. If you’d like to include an illustration or photograph, please do! Closing date is 31st May.
