Portsmouth’s Spinnaker Tower takes part in the Big Draw
The Spinnaker Tower is putting on its artistic beret this October and hosting a Big Draw event on its view decks, set 100m above Portsmouth Harbour. On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October, visitors will be invited to collaborate on a colourful creation on the tower’s windows, to create a futuristic outlook across the city. An event masterminded by independent charity the Campaign for Drawing, the Big Draw has a different theme every year for novice artists to interpret in their creations. Over 1,000 events will be held across the UK during the month-long festival, with this year’s theme set as ‘Draw Tomorrow’. The Big Draw event is included in Spinnaker Tower’s admission price, adults £8.55, children £6.75 and concessions £7.55. It’s open daily 10am - 6pm; for details call 02392 857520, www.spinnakertower.co.uk.
