Love to draw? Love to laugh? Join us for this fantastic, innovative event where two teams of crack illustrators will be pitted against each other. The children will suggest subjects for the team members to draw live – which will be projected onto the big screen. Then it’s Ready, Steady, Draw! Which team will be the best at drawing bees riding unicorns or sausages in sunhats? You decide!
