Broadstairs will be seeing some fishy followings at the beginning of November, as the Big Draw returns to the town.

The event is part of the wide range of events, organised by the Thanet Coast Project, to celebrate Kent Coastal Week, which runs from Saturday 24 October through to Sunday 1 November under the theme of 'fishing and eating for a healthy sea'.

Thanet Coast's Big Draw takes place this year on Sunday 1 November at 11am at Viking Bay, with the storytelling theme of "fishy followings" led by Scandalmongers this year.

Thanet Coast Project Manager, Tony Child, said: "The Big Draw is always a popular event every year and it's a great way for families to get involved to create a breathtaking art masterpiece on one of Thanet's beautiful beaches. In previous years, we've had some wonderful creations that have been well worth seeing and I'm sure that this year's unusual story and art combination - ending with a 'mighty conch shell' - will be no exception to that."

The 10th national Big Draw is a month-long campaign of drawing events for people of all ages and abilities. It spans art, science, design and the environment, and connects generations and communities to show drawing can be an enjoyable and fun.

To take part in this year's Big Draw, meet at Broadstairs Harbour, opposite the Tartar Frigate. If you want to see the finish product, head down to Viking Bay on Sunday 1 November at 1pm
