The Canterbury Tales is celebrating the world's biggest drawing festival this autumn with a fantastic competition.

To mark the launch of The Big Draw 2015, the award-winning attraction is inviting young visitors to get creative and will be offering prizes for the best pictures.

General Manager Lyndsay Ridley says: “All you need to do is draw a Chaucer-inspired masterpiece! It can be a character or story from The Canterbury Tales itself or someone that you met on your visit to the attraction.

“It can me a medieval-inspired piece, such as the Elsmere manuscript, or a modern twist on the classic. We want to see it all so be original and creative and we’ll offer some great prizes for the best,” adds Lyndsay.

Details

The competition is open to anyone of school age and you can enter through your school or as an individual.

The best drawing submitted via schools will win a visit from a colourful costumed character who will read one of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales to your class or assembly. Second prize is 10 copies of the Usbourne classic of The Canterbury Tales – the perfect addition to any school library.

Enter as an individual and you could win a family ticket to The Canterbury Tales’ sister attraction, Kent Life Heritage Farm Park near Maidstone. Second prize will be a copy of the Usbourne classic of The Canterbury Tales.

The two winning pictures will also be featured on The Canterbury Tales website and in the attraction’s admissions display area throughout November.

Deadline

Competition entries can be submitted from 1-27 October 2015.

To take part, send your drawings to: The Big Draw, Canterbury Tales Visitor Attraction, 31 St Margaret’s Street, Canterbury CT1 2TG.

Include your name, age, address, email and phone number and whether you are entering through a school or as an individual.

The winners will be announced on 30 October.
