The Big DrawIf cave men could animate then so can you. That's the premise behind The Big Draw which takes Living Lines as its theme for 2017. The drawing festival takes place nationwide throughout the month of October. In London you can draw a dolls' house in a shoebox at the Doodle Bar or create your own light patterns in Kensington Palace. Museums, galleries, heritage sites, libraries, schools and parks across London including institutions like the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Chelsea Town Hall, Royal Academy of Arts and artsdepot are taking part, so there's a good chance something will be going on at a venue near you.

 

About Tower Bridge

With its views of the Tower Of London and The Shard, Tower Bridge offers one of the best vantage points in the city from its spectacular glass walkways, elevated 140ft above the Thames. The East Walkway boasts fantastic views of the Docklands and the elegant Canary Wharf, while from the West Walkway you can compare the mixed architectural styles of City Hall, the Tower Of London, St Paul's Cathedral, the City, Big Ben and the London Eye.
