The winner receives 200, runner-up 100 and third 75 and entry is free. Nuala will also facilitate a writing workshop on Saturday 16th March 2019.
There will be concerts, art exhibitions, writing/art and craft workshops for all ages, a night of Drama, photography, there's lots more- in fact, something for everyone and we would be delighted to welcome you to the weekend of festivities and enjoyment.
