Big Draw event at Boston Castle
Published Thursday 25th October 12
One of Rotherham's most historic buildings will prove to be a 'big draw' during next week's half-term when it hosts a national event especially for young people and families.
On Tuesday, October 30, the newly-restored 18th century Boston Castle will be the local venue for the national 'Big Draw' event when children are invited to create their own models of special buildings to go into Rotherham's very own Tiny Town.
Organised by Rotherham Borough Council Heritage staff, the event is geared towards children aged from four to ten years old, who are accompanied by an adult.
Two sessions will run from 11 am until 12.15 pm and from 1 until 2.15 pm. The event will cost £2.50 per child. As places are limited it is advisable to book or reserve a place at Clifton Park Museum before the event, either in person or by phone on 01709 336633.
Due to the limited availability, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
The restored former hunting lodge will still be open to the general public all day but visitors are being advised that there will be no access to the roof during the two activity sessions.
The 'Big Draw' is being organised by the Campaign for Drawing and is the world's biggest annual celebrations of drawing. The Boston Castle event is just one of hundreds of events being held all over the UK in a month-long festival throughout October.
