We're very excited about The Finsbury Park Picture, the impressive mural by artist Dale Lewis that dons the entranceway of our brand new cinema. If you are under 12 you can enter our competition to win a framed spot forever on our walls next to or near our celebrated artist.

Can you create a fictional character that would feel at home amongst Dale Lewis' creations, inspired by The Finsbury Park Picture or by a film you've seen? Tell us all about them and why you think they ought to be there, as well as drawing and colouring your entry.
