Splash Fiction Readings

Victoria Baths Splash Fiction Competition 2019


Our Weekend Of Words festival in June marked the official launch of our first creative writing competition (on the theme of water - what else?!) complete with a £100 cash prize for the winner.

And our upcoming Swim for Restoration weekend will see the WINNER announced as part of an event hosted by Victoria Baths' Writer-in-Residence and Splash Fiction competition judge Sarah-Clare Conlon. 

Sarah-Clare will also be reading some more of her work produced during her time here in 2019 as Writer-in-Residence. 

The readings and competition announcement will be made in the beautiful setting of the Turkish Baths Rest Room on Saturday 7th September 1-2pm (during the Swim for Restoration Weekend).

Entry to the building for the entire weekend is FREE of charge and there will be fun for all the family, including art exhibitions and workshops by Islington Mill Arts, a photography exhibition by South Manchester Camera Club, yoga sessions for children and adults, Guided Building Tours, not to mention the Tea Toom, Pizza van, Ice creams, Gift Shop and watching the swimming from the Gala Pool balcony (Note: tickets for swimming are now sold out).



Victoria Baths Splash Fiction Competition is supported by Arts Council England, with funding from the National Lottery.
