A giant walk-in theatre book filled with stories and drawings from around the world was created by families and children this week.

The Big Draw, held throughout October, is the world’s biggest drawing festival, run by charity the Campaign for Drawing, and has more than 280,000 participants from 20 countries taking part.

The organisation’s education co-ordinator, Charlotte Hawkes, said of the October 18 event at Strawberry Hill House: “Children and adults were equally enthusiastic about creating the fabulous walk-in theatre book, which was both colourful and educational for all those who took part.”
