Drawn to Water: Quentin Blake at WWT

Reimagine the wonder of wetlands and nature through the eyes of the UK’s best loved illustrator.

Collect an illustrated guide full of Quentin Blake’s drawings and journey around our wonderful wetland world this summer. New seasonal trails will be launched later in the year, each with a different illustrated guide to collect and keep.

We’ve got a whole host of art and illustration activities aimed at all ages and abilities, with new events and activities to enjoy throughout the year.

Plus there are lots of Quentin Blake goodies up for grabs including the chance to win a one-off, special edition Quentin Blake print.
