Walsall Museum is offering the chance to win tickets to the very first performance of The Life and Times of the Tat Man, a powerful and stirring new play by acclaimed local playwright David Calcutt at Walsall Museum on Saturday 12 April 2014. The play is inspired by Walsall’s historic Bayard’s Colts.
How to enter
Horses feature strongly in the story of the Tat Man, a one man show performed by actor Tony Barrett, and so our competition is about horses too.
To enter all you need to do is send us your short story on the theme of ‘horses’. All stories must be 500 words or less and must be typed. Stories can be entered into the competition by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, posting them to Walsall Museum, Lichfield Street, Walsall, WS1 1TR or dropping them off at the Museum in person. Please ensure you include your name and a contact phone number or email address.
The competition is open from Friday 28 February 2014 and the deadline for entries is 12 noon on Friday 28 March 2014. The winners will be announced on Friday 4 April 2014.
The competition will be judged by playwright David Calcutt and Head of Libraries, Arts and Heritage at Walsall Council, Sue Grainger.
The first prize is one pair of tickets to the first performance of The Life and Times of the Tat Man Tales on Saturday 12 April 2014 and one free riding lesson at Lodge Farm Equestrian in Aldridge.
The second prize is one pair of tickets to the first performance of The Life and Times of the Tat Man Tales on Saturday 12 April 2014.
There are two prizes, which are as stated and no cash or other alternatives will be offered.
The two prize-winning entries, along with other entries selected on merit by the judges, will be displayed within the performance area at Walsall Museum from April to June 2014 for audiences to read before and after performances.
Entrants must be 13 years or older to enter. Entries by under 18s will need parental consent to be shown, either by signed covering letter from a parent or guardian or by email from a parent or guardian.
