Draw Baby, Draw!

As part of Leeds "Light Night" event this month, the Thought Bubble Festival team have organised a special free event encouraging everyone to come along and draw to your heart's content.

On Friday 9th October, Thought Bubble will take part in Light Night Leeds to encourage everyone to get creative.

Light Night is a national programme of events covering the whole of the UK when, for one night, a city stays up so that its attractions and symbols are seen in a new light.

Six major UK cities - as well as Leeds, the others are Kircaldy, Birmingham, Dundee, Nottingham and Perth - will offer their residents and visitors the opportunity to experience their city from a fresh perspective.

Organisers say it's a chance for everyone to come together and celebrate the city, focusing on their shared culture, history and identity. Spectators get to see the unusual for free in a familiar environment and "lose themselves" in the city, which is transformed into a stage for the night.

As part of Leeds Light Night event, Thought Bubble are holding a live art installation at Travelling Man Leeds on their store front window. Lees residents and visitors are invited to pop along and draw something, and there will also be freebies, snacks and drinks for all.

The finished art will be displayed at the Travelling Man Leeds Coffee Bar.

• Draw, Draw Draw! is on Friday 9th October, 5.30pm to 10pm, FREE. Travelling Man Leeds, 32 Central Rd, LS1 6DE, 0113 2436461.

• Thought Bubble: The Leeds Sequential Art Festival takes place 19 - 22 November 2009, offering a huge one day comic book convention Saturday 21st November 2009 at Saviles Hall Leeds.
