Chalkfest 2020 @Home

Our flagship community event won’t be able to take place in Newbury Market place this year due to the coronavirus situation and the restritions on large number of people gatherings. Instead, we propose we decorate the pavements in front of our homes on Monday 3 August 2020.

Get chalking on the day, create roughly a 1 metre square picture in front of your house and if you want to enter our 2020 competition, pay the donation entry fee below (£1 per competition participant), e-mail us images of the chalk artwork and let us know the age of the participant (when filling you details on payment). The prizes will be City Arts Gift Vouchers for children (to 12 years old), teen (13 to 17 years old) and adult (18 +) categories.

Date: Chalkfest 2020 is on 3 August 2020 – competition tickets on sale on the day from 9 am to 7pm
Deadline: Pay your fee below and send us your images by 7pm on 3 August 2020 to with the name of the entrant you told us when making payment

Competion results will be published on our Facebook page on week commencing 10 August 2020. The images will be judged by our chairman and artist Diana Pattenden. The judge decision is final.
