‘It’s Our World’

Big Draw Family Day


This year the Big Draw is all about ‘our world’ – so join in and get inspired to draw your world at the Barber!

Work with our artist Ruth Turnbull to create drawings of the world around you…draw your favourite place, a magical journey or your imaginary world, then add your artwork to our Big Draw gallery!

Enjoy exciting stories from around the world in our live storytelling sessions (12 and 2pm) and go exploring with our global gallery trail.
