The Magic Drawabout – Free (Lancelot Adam’s Walkabout Troubadour Squad)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

‘The Magic Drawabout’ will have you walking around with your eccentric guides, doodling all the characters in the Grassmarket, and being bizarrely serenaded by a guitarist all the while. They provide pens and paper – all you need to do is turn up. On my tour, we sketched two American tourists holding a plastic camel and a beer stein, a Finnish beat boxer, and a fortieth birthday party. The children on the tour had an absolute blast, and the host took particular care in making sure their works of art were praised by all. So, if you have any budding young artists in the family, or you just want to draw with other artists for an hour, head for the ‘drawabout’.

Laughing Horse at The Beehive Inn, 8 – 27 Aug (not 14, 21), 5.00pm (6.00pm) free, fpp185.
