Event Reviews

Brilliant day out, learnt loads, ready for next year!
As a beginner I did not know what to expect but I found the day invaluable! I will certainly be there next year.
If you are interested in any special effects makeup or prosthetics then this is your Mecca. Lots of information and ways to make connections with those in the industry.
The best event ever. My favourite, it is worth to go for anyone that likes makeup and prosthetics!!! And so educational.
An amazing event, extremely well organised. Exploding with Creativity. Really friendly and welcoming staff. Highly recommended
A wide range of fantastic artists, very educational demonstrations/talks and overall just so inspiring. Can't wait for the next one
What is particularly good is the feeling of open sharing about knowledge that runs through the event, we ask so many question to the professionals...every time we get so much support and knowledge.
Such an amazing event! Loved every second of it and learnt so much!! Will come next year!! Thanks Neill Gorton and to your amazing team.
So much knowledge of the industry imparted with both wisdom and wit. A must-see for makeup/makeup FX artists serious about entering the industry - or those who simply enjoy the craft.
Best day of the year! So much learning and amazing people to talk to
