Young Reviewers wanted for Lytham Festival

The Lottery Winners

Do you read the reviews on altBlackpool, and think ‘I could do a better job than that’? Are you keen to get your hands on tickets to the biggest and best music and arts festival on the Fylde Coast? Are you old enough to have left high school but young enough to still be considered cool? Would you like your family and friends to see your reviews on the Lytham Festival blog? If the answer to all of these questions is yes, and you are available in the first week of August then we have some exciting news for you.

The good people at Cuffe and Taylor are running a competition for 16 to 22 year olds who are aspiring music reviewers. Winning entrants will receive tickets to events during the festival which runs from 1 to 7 August. The reviews they then write of the events they attend will feature on the Lytham Festival blog.

So what do you have to do? The good news is it’s quite simple. Just write up to 100 words about which act you are most looking forward to at this year’s festival. You aren’t restricted to the music acts, whatever takes your fancy from the range including art and comedy performances.

Entries need to be submitted by 25 July. When you are happy with your effort send it to [email protected]. Bear in mind 100 words isn’t a lot, and this competition is bound to be popular so you need to make sure your entry stands out from the crowd. To give you an idea the first paragraph in this article is exactly one hundred words.

Tickets are on sale to all Lytham Festival events now online, and The Lytham Festival Box Office is also now open in Lytham Piazza. For more details about all events at Lytham Festival 2016 go to www.lythamfestival.com
