Dear All

As the run up to Figureworld starts we will be periodically sending you information about what activities are planned for the day. You may already know some of the great events that are taking place on the day but we will have further announcements as some activities that are now in late planning stage come together and get finalised.

The place in between the announcements to keep a track on the day is at the Figureworld website (http://www.tbfigureworld.co.uk) where today we posted the preliminary list of traders, something for everyone to buy we think as we know modellers have a great urge to spend.

Below is a little taster of what is to come.

For 2011 the seminars will be delivered by, Euro Militaire Best of Show winning, Chris Clayton. These will be held in a dedicated room, where attendees can find out how Chris goes about creating his award-winning models.

One of the most talked about aspects of Figure World 2010 was the complementary bust given to 30 exhibitors. This will be repeated in 2011. Every exhibitor of three or more items, receives a raffle ticket. Thirty of these are drawn during the day and the winners receive a specially commissioned bust free of charge. Look on The Basement Forum to see Adrian Hopwood’s series of postings on painting 2011’s bust.

Visitors to Figure World 2010 commented on the great range of traders present. For 2011 the trade area has been extended and new manufacturers and retailers have booked stands to add to the repeat bookings from last year’s traders.

The demonstration area in 2010 was very well attended. In 2011 more top flight demonstrators have agreed to share their knowledge and the area will be bigger with more space to see what they are doing.

For those staying all day there are light refreshments available in the venue and for those wanting something more substantial there are a good range of eateries in the town of Oundle, only a few minutes walk from the venue.

If you are a figure modeller, don’t miss out on the only event in the UK that has been put on to meet your needs.

If you have any comments then please mail us or grab one of us at any event

We look forward to seeing you there

The Basement Team
