The Campaign for Drawing's aim is to get everyone drawing. Its annual showpiece, The Big Draw, proves that drawing can be a public activity as well as a private passion.

Nick Harvey MP says:

We are all looking forward to the completion of the revamped town square in Barnstaple.

I think the Museum and Albert clock will now become the defining image of Barnstaple and a welcome focal point for public events. Its first community event has already been scheduled.

I am delighted that the new square is to host a national Campaign for Drawing's Big Draw Day on 20 October. This will provide an ideal show case for the square during which free art activities will be provided.

I wish the organisers every success and hope that the weather is kind!

Further Information

During October, 1000 venues throughout Britain, from large national institutions to village halls, join in to offer more than 350,000 people of all ages the chance to discover that drawing is enjoyable, liberating and at everyone's fingertips.
