Discovery Day in pictures

by Rufus Purdy Events

If you were reading the Curtis Brown Creative blog last week, you’ll have been well aware that we held our second Discovery Day event at Foyles bookshop on Saturday. We could tell you some stories – the one about the agent who got trapped in a lift, the ‘media centre’ being set up between teapots in the staff kitchen, etc – but we’ll save those for another day. For now, we thought you might just like to see some pictures of what turned out to a wonderful and fun day.
