I've compiled a list of the socials that I know of and have been too that run regularly for creatives, it's always good to go and socialize with other people in our industry, I have found that everyone helps each other and I have made some very good friends from attending these so here goes:
The Gloucester Social
Originally created through purpleport.com this event is aimed at all creatives to attend and get to know each other. Held once a month usually on a Friday night, join the group to get invited each month. It is run by Richard Olpin.
Southwest Tog Up Exeter and Plymouth
Southwest Togup is a monthly social aimed primarily at local photographers however other creatives in the industry are welcome.
The Exeter monthly social is normally held on the 1st Thursday of the month at Samuel Jones on the Quay from 7.30-9.30pm at Exeter- come along for a drink and meet others in the industry, I'll be the person drinking tea!
The Plymouth Tog up is currently held at The Treasury on Catherine Street on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 7.30-9.30pm.
