Join Purple and Grey for a big draw event at the historic scenic Creswell Crags home of the UKs first rock art.

Be inspired by this wonderful gorge, bring your sketch books and own drawing materials, and spend time exploring the Creswell area and discover a diverse range of cultural and geological sights and attractions.

Meet Purple and Grey outside at the visitor centre entrance at 10.30am on 11 October and spend a few hours in the grounds drawing the sights in your chosen medium. Return around 12.30 - 1 pm around the cafe area for a cuppa and share your drawings with each other.

The Big Draw Festival is for anyone who loves to draw, as well as those who think they can't! It's an opportunity to join a global community in celebration of the universal language of drawing.

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, 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.

Anyone can get involved in the festival. Some famous folk who have supported past events include award-winning author Philip Pullman, Children's Laureate Chris Riddell, artist Tanya Raabe-Webber, illustrators Oliver Jeffers, Posy Simmonds and Sir Quentin Blake, and many more.
