19th November 2022 - Coventry Building Society Arena

The day comprises demos, talks and advice from top film industry professionals, beautiful body art, extraordinary exhibits, exciting competitions and shopping with leading specialist retailers. This is our eighth annual event which since its small beginnings has grown into THE annual makeup FX gathering, and has sold out every year, so be sure to book your tickets early.



Our focus on knowledge sharing means attendees from further and higher education institutions have an unparalleled opportunity to learn, network, and shop, and we’re pleased to offer tutors discounts for groups of 10+ students and teaching aids for follow-up work.


You’ll find an abundance of skill on show on two stages, in competitions, live demos and the Monster Mash Exhibition that showcases work by various artists from Academy Award winners to recent graduates.


You’ll also get to buy products and equipment from the best brands in the business and maybe win a Prize Draw of makeup FX goodies for your kit!


If you’re an aspiring artist you can also apply for a place in Portfolio Surgery; a one-to-one advice session with an experienced industry pro.
