BIG DRAW FOR REVAMPED TOWN SQUARE

October 3, 2007 9:40 AM

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.

    If you are a resident of the North Devon constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
