Aged 12 years or younger? Read on…

To celebrate Bel & The Dragon’s 6th anniversary and the beginning of the summer holidays, we have launched a Drawing Competition for children aged 12 years & younger, which will run for the whole month of August. We are appealing to all young budding artists throughout the South of England, to draw & send us a picture of a dragon enjoying their summer holiday.

In collaboration with Bloomsbury Children’s Books, 7 lucky winners will receive a copy of the delicious picture book The Great Dragon Bake Off  by Nicola O’Byrne, and the overall winner will also enjoy a complimentary Sunday lunch with the family at Bel & The Dragon. 

How to enter

Visit your nearest Bel & The Dragon, throughout August for lunch or dinner, where you will find an entry form on the back of the Children’s Menu.


Either enter your artwork by handing it to a member of the team at the end of your meal or alternatively finish it at home and email to or post to Bel & The Dragon, Central Office – Marketing Team, Blakes Lock, Gas Works Road, Reading. RG1 3EQ, by 5pm on Wednesday 31st August 2016.

Do share your drawings on our Facebook & Twitter pages using the hashtag #BandDdragoncomp

Looking for inspiration?

If you need a little help getting started then Nicola O’Byrne’s How To Draw a Dragon guide is a great place to begin.

About the book…

At the Ferocious Dragon Academy, dragons-in-training learn the arts of bone crunching and teeth sharpening. But there is one dragon who harbours a passion for a most undragonlike pastime . . .

Meet Flamie Oliver. To look at, Flamie is as terrifying as a dragon can get. But behind closed doors, Flamie is a stupendously spectacular Star Baker! That’s right – choux, rough, salty, sweet and puff – Flamie loves it all. In fact, he loves baking so much that his studies at the Ferocious Dragon Academy are starting to suffer, and there’s a chance he won’t graduate! Flamie’s going to need a real showstopper to get out of this one.

On your marks, get set . . . BAKE!
