Family Station: The Big Draw
The British Library
Sun 29 Oct 11.00 - 15.00
Join us at the Family Station to explore and play using our senses, as part of the Big Draw Festival 2023. The station, located on the Upper Ground Floor of the British Library St Pancras, will be transformed in to a fun frenzy of mark-making and colour. Join artist Mónica Rivas Velasquez for playful large-scale drawing, as you explore your senses, recording shapes, lines and patterns in the Library.

There will be unexpected and everyday materials to enjoy, as well as a sensory trail to discover the building and learn all about the Library. Our pop-up book area will also be out, with an exciting range of children’s books including tactile and braille editions.

Our team will be on hand to support your visit and answer any questions. Learn more about your visit, accessibility, our facilities and cafés.
