Four teams will be chosen to participate with this challenge and each team member should submit an individual application, indicating their team name at the top of the application. The deadline for team applications: 5pm, Friday 05 May 2017.
Need help getting your team together? If you’d like to take part but don’t have a team, or have a team but are looking for additional members, we’re holding a matchmaking event at King’s Lynn Arts Centre on Wednesday 26 April from 6 - 8pm.
