National Poetry day Competition

To celebrate National Poetry day, we are announcing a brand new competition for all you wonderful popcorn lovers! We are partnering up with another fantastic local brand, Beaumont & Bear, to offer you the chance to win some of our delicious popcorn and a cosy Beaumont & Bear sweatshirt to enjoy it in!

At both Portlebay and Beaumont & Bear we are passionate about exploring the outdoors so this year for national poetry day we want to get people inspired by writing a poem about their favourite adventure or most loved place to visit. To announce our competition we’ve created our very own poem to get your inspiration flowing…
