The Big Draw at High House Production Park

Saturday 22 October 12noon - 4pm

Free event

High House Production Park, Purfleet, RM19 1RJ


Everyone, young or old, beginner or expert, is invited to High House Production Park for the free Big Draw event, to draw and learn tips and techniques from skilled and experienced artists.

This year's Big Draw theme is ‘Steam Powered’ and we'll explore through Offenbach’s opera The Tales of Hoffman (Les Contes d’Hoffman). 

  • Design costumes with Royal Opera House costume makers or even try a few on.
  • Visit artist Hilary Powell at the High House Artist Studios and add your local knowledge and ideas to a giant map of the area drawn with local Purfleet chalk.
  • Settle down in the café at the drawing table and meet artists who will share their skill and pass on techniques and tips.


Paper and pencils provided so everyone can get drawing. No previous experience or specialist skill is needed, just come and put pencil to paper and see where inspiration takes you.
