Doodle Social: Back to School

Hi, hey, hello Gluggers!

After the success of our last event, we thought we’d shake things up and throw a more hands-on, making and doing evening into the mix.

We’re super stoked to have teamed up with some great creative talent for our third ever Doodle Social, this time at Fourpure Brewery Co. - Bermondsey!

We’ll kick things off with short talks from Laurie RowanChris Martin, Holly St Clair, and Cintia Bertaccini.

Then the rest of the evening you’ll be given the chance to roam the Fourpure space, notwork, grab a few drinks and take part in plasticine workshops with Laurie Rowan, a zine bingo workshop with Holly St Clair & a papercraft workshop by Cintia Bertaccini

Tickets are just £7.50, and £5 for students, plus a free beer on arrival! Tickets are limited and last time they sold out in a flash - so grab them while you can, it’s going to be mega! 

See you there, Glug London
