Sketchbook Sunday – First Sunday of the month

Throughout 2018, we are offering reduced entry of £2 on the first Sunday of the month, also know as Sketchbook Sunday and the first one takes place on 4 February.

But how do you get entry for £2?

It’s simple, on the first Sunday of the month, bring your sketchbook with you when you visit us and show it to reception in the VIC!

What is Sketchbook Sunday?

Sketchbook Sunday is part of a wider project in collaboration with Shropshire Libraries Service.

Sketchbooks and journals are usually private; a place to make mistakes, work out ideas. We are very grateful to those who have already agreed to share their work in this form, with the county.
