The Big Draw
National Trust - Stourhead
Sat 06 Oct 10am-4pm
Join us for a full day of arty fun all across the property. This fundraising event is for all the family, with activities around the property to get hands-on with. Join us on the 6 October for a day of crafting activities across the property.

There will be a wide range of activities to try, from biscuit decorating and photography workshops to still life drawing in the Picture Gallery and a community canvas.

When Stourhead first opened in the 1740’s a magazine described it as a ‘living work of art’ and it still remains so today.

Come and be inspired by the world-famous landscape garden with a magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare and exotic trees, alongside the Palladian family home.

With 14 different activities to try your hand at and artist in residence Anouk Mercier leading the community canvas there is a whole day of arty fun to be had.

Whilst entry for the day is free, there will be a small donation ask for some of the activities to help continue to care for this special place.
