Plus more events and activities at Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse this August
IF you're the type of person who isn't fully relaxed unless you've got a pen, paper, and preferably, a pint, all within close reach, there's a night coming up for you at Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse in Ancoats.
They're hosting a Doodle Class with illustrator Dave Draws. He's best known for his doodle maps (not to be confused with Google maps) which have featured on tea packets, gin bottles, and as attention-grabbing wall murals, here and abroad.
At the class, you'll doodle your own personalised map to take home, with Dave to guide you. And there's a pint of Seven Bro7ers beer included in the ticket price.
It's just one of the events at Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse this August, alongside quiz nights, art nights, book clubs and lots of live music. Check out the full listings below.
