Nominations for Kent Literacy Awards

The Canterbury Tales is delighted to be continuing in its role as an Ambassador for the Kent Literacy Awards, for the 2nd year running. Nominations are now open for the awards with 18 categories to choose from, including Best School Library, Best use of Art and Poetry and Most engaging Book Week theme.

Lyndsay Ridley, General Manager at The Canterbury Tales, says: “Geoffrey Chaucer is celebrated across the world as an incredible scholar, bringing joy to many who read his literature. As a visitor attraction dedicated to showcasing his most famous contribution to the literary world, it feels right to also contribute to an awards scheme which aims to showcase those amazing schools, institutions or individuals who are nurturing the next great author or poet, and also showing extraordinary commitment to furthering their pupils’ abilities in such essential skills as reading and writing.”

The Kent Literacy Awards call for nominations to showcase initiatives that make a real difference to the success of schools, furthering pupils understanding of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills which are often developed through a wide variety of cross-curricular topics, including arts and drama. The aim is to celebrate what has worked well in the classroom and help spread that best practice across the county.

The awards are organised by the KM Charity Team and will culminate in an awards celebration at Hempstead House Hotel in Sittingbourne at the end of June.  Visit for more details.
