The Big Draw

Big Draw Banner 2018.jpg

The Big Draw Festival was launched in October 2000 and since then has encouraged over four million people back to the drawing board. It has even notched up two world records: for the longest drawing in the world (1km) and the greatest number of people drawing simultaneously (over 7,000). The event grows every year and now has over 400,000 participants in over 25 countries worldwide.
