Glug London: Doodle Social

  • Dave Draws
  • Minerva Freire
  • Rana Fadavi
  • Anne Noble-Partridge
  • Alexander Whitley

We’re back with our first event of 2019.

To kick off the new year, we thought we’d create a new kinda evening for you..

Introducing...‘Doodle Social’.

So what’s it all about?

Think short talks, hands on art classes and long drinks with some of our fave illustrators at an after dark cocktail bar.

For our very first Doodle Social we’ve teamed up with Stitch to pull together a delicious line-up of talks from Minerva FreireDave Draws and Rana Fadavi. And that’s not all folks, the talks will be followed by life drawing classes led by Rana Fadavi and powered by Microsoft Surface.

Capacity of this event is more intimate that your usual Glug, so make sure you sketch this one into your diary and snap up a £7 ticket before it’s too late.

£7 tickets include drink, talks + drawing session!

We’ll see you there,
Glug London
