Surrey Reading Aloud competition 2019

Surrey Libraries and Brooklands Radio are celebrating the joy of reading aloud by inviting Surrey residents to nominate people in Surrey who bring stories alive when reading aloud.


Do you know someone who is brilliant at reading aloud to children or to adults?


It might be a family member, your babysitter, a nursery nurse, school teacher, carer or volunteer, or anyone else you love listening to reading aloud. They might read to children or adults, individually or in a groups. It doesn’t matter as long as you love hearing them read.


Surrey Libraries and Brooklands Radio would like to hear about them and what makes them so good at reading aloud. Visit Surrey Libraries and Brooklands Radio Go -for more information. Online nominations can be made at Surrey Reading Aloud competition 2019 nomination

The closing date for nominations is Sunday 13 October 2019. Following this, we will invite the best to send us a recording of them reading aloud by Sunday 3 November. The recordings will be podcast on our websites for a public vote to find the winner by Sunday 8 December.

The winner and the person who nominated them will each receive a £20 book voucher and the winner will be invited to read aloud a Christmas story on Brooklands Radio.
