• Drayton's 'Brainspotting' Red Hot Nose Day

    23rd March 2017

    Once again this year we are supporting Comic Relief by fundraising for Red Nose Day 2017 with our quirky ‘Brainspotting’ campaign!
    We’ve taken inspiration from the silver screen and created our very own movie poster – ‘Brainspotting’ - featuring some of the key faces in the Drayton family.
    Film buffs will be familiar with the iconic poster, originally created for the movie Trainspotting, based on the book by Irvine Welsh.
    Our version of the poster introduces Tech Head, Boss Lady, Plastic Boy, The Supplier and Space Cadet, who are the brains behind the brand.
