The Big Draw
A thrillng account to work on - The Big Draw is an annual drawing extravaganza which, at its peak, involved 1000 venues all over Britain. I worked on The Big Draw for five years and set up national newspaper sponsorship with both The Guardian and The Independent - each paper featured a special Big Draw pull-out as well as countless national newspaper features in every broadsheet and red top. The press coverage knew no bounds - Blue Peter, BBC Radio 4's Today programme (regularly), the BBC Ten O Clock News, ITV News and Channel Four News plus major magazine features in Time Out, Junior Magazine, and on BBC Radio 2, 4 and 5. The highlight for me was a live broadcast from Trafalgar Square with the BBC when Rolf Harris recreated Constable's The Hay Wain in front of The National Gallery.
