Bring your family and friends this October half-term for a Scarborough Art extravaganza! Celebrate the world’s biggest drawing festival across the Art Gallery and the Rotunda Museum with both drop in activities and themed workshops. This year’s theme is Play! – for kids and big kids alike. Let loose, embrace happy accidents, and unleash your creativity!

There will be drop in activities throughout the week at the Rotunda Museum and Scarborough Art Gallery for all to enjoy. For the festival this year, we are also partnering with Eastfield Community Library – More Than Books and Scarborough Library where there will be fossil drawing activities throughout the week and books relating to the Scarborough Collections on display.
