Rainbows over Runnymede is a creative project for 5-13 year olds, focused on one theme per month that links back to the key aspects of Magna Carta, and resulting in an exhibition on site once social distancing measures have been lifted.

To take part in Rainbows over Runnymede think about the monthly theme and how you personally relate to it. We’d like you to get creative and express those thoughts on an A4 piece of paper- be it a drawing, collage, painting, written piece- whatever you like.

If you don’t want to create something on paper you are also welcome to do a 30 second sound piece to express your thoughts which you can submit.

Themes

We will continue to provide one theme for each month social distancing measures are in place. When the measures are relaxed by the government we will produce an exhibition giving a voice to involving as many local young people’s work as possible which reflect how the lockdown has affected them - voices that are often missed in times of crisis. We will use this page for updates and if your piece has been selected for the exhibition by our panel of volunteer judges, we will send you an email to notify you.

Each new theme will be released at the top of this page on the 1st of every month and will be announced on our social media channels.

We can’t wait to see your masterpieces and welcome you back to Runnymede and Ankerwycke to see the exhibition. If you’d like to follow us on social media you can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
