Pomp, circumstance... and doodles
2:20pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
EDWARD Elgar may be well known for composing but his love of doodling will be explored throughout October.
Visitors young and old will be able to have fun during Doodling with Elgar at the Elgar Birthplace Museum, Lower Broadheath.
Families can take inspiration from Elgar’s own doodles in a special exhibition while exploring the museum with the family Big Drawing trail and activity days.
The activity days will be on Sunday, October 6 and 13, when visitors will be able to touch, try on and draw historical objects from the museum’s handling collections.
People can imitate his style of doodling or try to draw blindfolded.
For the adventurous there will be the chance to invent symbols for rhythmic beats or create art from the very noisy percussion instruments.
Lucy Maycock, graduate trainee, said: “What better way to celebrate Elgar’s love of doodling than to hold our own Big Draw event?
“All the activities have been designed to be fun for all our visitors, regardless of age or drawing skill.
“I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations.”
The museum is open from 11am to 5pm.
