Shamsi Flintoff Songwriting Competition 2020

The Shamsi Flintoff Songwriting Competition began in 2018 at the suggestion of Paul Flintoff, father of a Benenden Senior.

Impressed by a Live Lounge he attended at Benenden, where our guitarists and singers come together in the cafe at the end of term and during our Arts Festivals, Paul provided a trophy in his mother’s name to recognise and encourage the writing of original songs at School. The first two years saw very successful events enjoyed by live audiences, but being confined to lockdown hasn’t stopped the creative process in the slightest. This year seven original songs have been submitted by five girls, all of which are very impressive.
