Christmas Card Competition |

Wicksteed Park Children’s Charity Christmas Card Competition is now open!

We are looking for your Christmas card ideas so get creative and your design could become one of the Wicksteed Park cards for Christmas!

Tree decorationWe are looking designs that are A6 size (105 x 148mm) and have a special festive, Wicksteed Park, theme.

The designs will be on show during our Enchanted Tales and Illuminations event and the winning design(s) will be used for our Community Christmas card collection. We will send the winner a framed image of their entry and a pack of the winning card design.
