ALL NEW CRAFTWORKS - FEBRUARY 11TH.
22 January 2019

Our live show CraftWorks is being relaunched at a new venue and with new sponsors. Same old grumpy git on the stage though.

The first show in the new series will take place at BAFTA 195 on Piccadilly on 11th February and will run from 3.00 to 5.00. It's got a cracking line-up and the tickets which you can buy here are just 25 plus VAT.


Oh, brilliant, who's on? We've got five strands in the first show. First up, we'll be joined by Nils Leonard of Uncommon Studios who'll be alongside some of the other people who helped make the superb new ITV work highlighting their dedication to drama. He loves a stage, that Nils Leonard.


Look who's talking! Oi! Bit rude! Anyway, next up will be a live version of Thinkbox's excellent ongoing series which asks people within the ad industry to name three great ads they had nothing to do with.


Ooo, interesting. Who's doing that? Just awaiting confirmation. Watch this space.


After that? Steve Moss, the winner of the 2018 Homespun Yarns competition will show off his film and discuss it with some of the people who helped him make it.


Are you doing one of the Strictly bits? Yep... Strictly Super Bowl. Anna Carpen, Sue Higgs and Vaughan Arnell will be offering pith and scores out of ten on some of the big ads which emerge from this year's big sports event.


That should be excellent. And finally? Walter Campbell and Tom Carty - one of the greatest creative partnerships in the history of advertising. On stage. Together.


And CraftWorks now has sponsors? Yes... but sponsors isn't really an adequate word. The people who are backing CraftWorks are keen supporters of it because they love the event itself. That matters to us a great deal and we're really touched by their enthusiasm for it, and what we're trying to achieve.

Buy tickets here for just 25 plus VAT.
