Love drawing? Can't draw? Won't draw? The Big Draw is for you

Love drawing? Can't draw? Won't draw? The Big Draw is for you in South Shropshire

Take part in The Big Draw and help us Draw the Farm at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm, on Thursday 1 November, 10am - 4.30pm.



The Big Draw is a UK-wide festival of community drawing and the world’s biggest celebration of drawing.

Community Officer, Vicky Wood, from the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership’s Farming Project, explains “Absolutely no experience is necessary, just a willingness to try something new and have some fun with pens, paints, pencils and a very long sheet of paper.”

The Big Draw is open to all ages and abilities.  Everyone is welcome, no booking required and all materials are supplied.  The event is free, but normal admission charges to Acton Scott Historic Working Farm apply.

For further information please contact Vicky Wood or Cath Landles at the Shropshire Hills AONB Partnership on 01588 674080.
