Annual Drawing Festival returns to Gainsborough

Local residents are invited to come to the Big Draw in Sweet Caroline’s in Gainsborough as part of the Gainsborough Townscape Heritage Projects.

On Saturday, October 22, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., an annual drawing festival that takes place in cities around the world will take place in West Lindsey.

Each year the festival has a theme and this year’s theme is “come back to color”. This theme matches Gainsborough’s current restoration projects around Market Place, Market Street, Silver Street and Lord Street, which are currently underway.

Councilor Paul Howitt-Cowan, Champion Member of Heritage and Recreation at West Lindsey District Council, said: “This annual drawing festival is a fantastic opportunity for our residents to take part in a free workshop and spend their day demonstrating of creativity. We are delighted to see the festival return to West Lindsey once again. »

Urban Landscape Heritage Activities Coordinator Theresa Workman planned the event. Theresa said: “We are delighted to be able to host this event again in Gainsborough. There will be a free workshop to design new window artwork for the Gainsborough Heritage Center which is a fantastic opportunity for our local residents.

During this event, residents will also have the opportunity to make lanterns. These lanterns can be used on the Illuminate Guided Walk which is part of the Illuminate event.

The Illuminate event will return on Saturday November 26, 2022, where Gainsborough will once again be filled with light and sound with fabulous projections on the walls of Gainsborough Old Hall, a fire garden within the grounds of All Saints Church, street performers and a guided walk along Trent Riverside.
