The Big Draw

14 Oct 2017 - 14 Oct 2017

On Saturday 14th October, Burnby Hall Gardens will be hosting a BIG Draw family event at the Gardens from 11.00 – 15.00. 

The BIG Draw is the world’s biggest drawing Festival with over 1000 events worldwide involving over 400 ,000 people. From 1-31 October, every year, thousands of enjoyable and experimental drawing activities connect people of all ages with schools, galleries, museums, libraries, heritage sites, village halls, refugee organisations, outdoor spaces - all sorts of places - artists, scientists, designers, illustrators, inventors and each other. 

Since launching in 2000, the festival has taken place in 28 countries around the world, engaged over 3 million people and even clocked up two world records.

This year’s BIG Draw theme is ‘Living Lives’ using movement to express yourself, creating free and spontaneous art!

As part of the BIG Draw at the Gardens come down and enjoy:

  • Take your line for a walk: Lie on your belly, stand on one leg or even roll about on a skateboard. Let the movement be your guide and create your own abstract masterpiece.
  • Wondrous Woollen Web: Duck, dive and weave your way around our Garden lawn, using your woollen line to help us create a giant wondrous web using an array of rainbow woollen colours.
  • BIG Draw themed trail around the Gardens

This is event is free and part of normal admissions to the Gardens, so why not come down and enjoy the day? For more information on the BIG Draw, please check out our website: or call our Visitor Centre on: 01759 307125.
