Time Capsule Competition

13th Mar - 28th Apr

Ahead of the coronation of King Charles III, we're starting the celebrations with our Time Capsule Competition for schools!

Show us what you think summarises this coronation year by designing us a piece of artwork of what you would include in a time capsule for 2023. This can be done by an individual pupil or as a class entry.

The judges' favourite entry will be buried at The Marlowes, and the winning school will receive a huge £1,000 spend!  

Make sure to include the child's name, school and age on the back of the artwork and your school's contact details.


Entries must be posted to:

Coronation Art Competition

The Marlowes Shopping Centre

Hemel Hempstead


Alternatively, entries can be handed in at the Centre Management office at The Marlowes.


Entries close Friday 28th April 2023 - any entries received after this time will not be counted.
