MSGO4 - 'Lost Words of Epsom' Competition for Children
Thursday 03 May 2018

In July The Arts Society Epsom was proud to again be associated with the 2018 MSGO4 Epsom and Ewell Arts Festival as a sponsor of 'The Lost Words of Epsom Common' competition.

This invited children aged 8 to 16 to submit an illustration, poem, or both, inspired by one of eight 'lost words' from the 17th Century and used at the height of Epsom's popularity as a spa town.  The words, chosen by Jeremy Harte, curator of Bourne Hall Museum, describe the creatures and activities of Epsom Common where the original well was sited.

Winning entries were read by their authors at a Prize Giving presentation at Bourne Hall while their artwork was displayed on a screen behind.  The entries were also published in a special book presented to each winner.
