It’s Thursday night and my hands are fidgeting, I’ve been working all day… what do I do…. Lets head on down to Manchester’s very own Drink’n’Doodle event! Drink n’Doodle is a monthly meet up in Manchester aimed at bringing together creative people, who want to enjoy a casual doodle over a few drinks. The event is held on a monthly basis and attracts a variety of creative types.
The night started off with two long benches covered in white paper and a huge pot of pens, pencils, felt-tips and charcoals. I went for the pencils and away I went. To my left was a freelance motions graphic designer, to my right an ex-recruiter who just loves to doodle foxes… a real mix. The drinks were flowing, the doodles were expanding the room was full of laughter so I decided it was time to get a cheeky bit of networking in I swapped a few business cards/emails/cheesy jokes and the night was coming to an end on high spirits! Literally! So if you’re in Manchester and fancy a doodle check out Drink’n’Doodle on MeetUp.com!
