LOCAL high schools are invited to take part in an art competition to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the re-enactment of the Battle of Nantwich.
The winning school will receive £500 from the Rotary Club of Nantwich to be spent on computer purchases.
For the last 40 years, the Sealed Knot have been re-enacting the Battle of Nantwich which took place on January 25th, 1644. This battle was one of many fought between the Royalists and Parliamentarians across the country during the English Civil Wars. The battle resulted in a resounding victory for the Parliamentarians.
With the continued efforts of the Sealed Knot to bring this interesting aspect of history alive, we would like to encourage local schoolchildren to become involved in what has become a town tradition.
Art work must depict some aspect of the Battle of Nantwich, the English Civil Wars or the Sealed Knot’s involvement in re-enacting the Battle of Nantwich.
The closing date for entries is Wednesday, January 11th.
The High Sheriff of Cheshire will judge the participating schools' work and the winning school will receive £500 towards computer purchases from the Rotary Club of Nantwich.
Selected entries will be exhibited at Nantwich Museum.
