Do you love drawing? Do you like to get all arty with pens, pencils, glue and glitter or like to draw on your iPad or computer?  If you answered yes to any of this then you should enter our competition to design a poster for our festival The Great Big Noise.

The winner will have their poster design printed into a massive 60x40 inches and displayed during the whole festival in the Great Hall of the Royal Exchange for everyone to see – you’ll also get to take your poster home too. On top of that you will win a family ticket (4 people) to a festival show of your choice.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS...

Think about what THE GREAT BIG NOISE means to you – be as wild and creative as you can but don’t forget to include important things like the title and the dates!

Draw your design on an A3 piece of paper or on the computer and send them into us at

Great Big Noise, The Royal Exchange Theatre, St Ann’s Square, Manchester, M2 7DH or email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please make sure you have marked your entry clearly with your name, age and the contact detail of a responsible adult (we are very sorry but we are unable to return any of the original designs)

Entries must be with us by Monday 23 May at 12noon, the competition will be judged by our in-hose design manager and the winner will be announced on Monday 30 May.

Entrants must be 12years or under
