This October, take part in the world's biggest festival of art and drawing at Windsor Castle. After being inspired by the beautiful surroundings of the Castle, come along to our drop-in art workshop and create your own masterpiece to take home.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the restoration of the State Apartments, after the devastating fire that broke out at Windsor in 1992. Our Big Draw activities will be a celebration of the incredible craftsmanship that allowed countless rooms to be restored to their former glory.

On Monday 23, Wednesday 25 and Friday 27 October, we will be joined by local artist Julie Simmonds, who will introduce you to new techniques and tricks of the trade, proving that everyone can have fun with art.
