Important Dates and Welcome to Charnwood!

We can’t believe we’re only eight weeks away from UKIWS actually happening! It’s really exciting and Mike, Steve, Rob and I can’t wait to meet you at the event. I’ve got some important dates to let know in today’s update. You can watch the video update or carry on reading….

Closing Date for Competition Entries:
If you’re entering the Spirit of Turning Competition, in which you can win one of the really fabulous prizes on offer (including a day with a top UK pro turner, £120 of exotic wood blanks, tools and more!), please make sure you enter on or before 1st May. After that day we’ll be sorting the judging and the People’s Choice Award out, and no further entries will be permitted. Entry details and form are here.

Master Class Tickets:
Please make sure you book your Master Class tickets before the end of April to enable us to sort out the arrangements for the demonstrators. We cannot guarantee that there will be tickets available for Master Classes on the day, so (to coin a cliche) please do book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Hotel Bookings:
If you’re wanting to spend either the Friday or Saturday evening with us too, why not book a room and make a weekend of it? Use code AUKIW when calling Hilton reservations on 02476 603 000. If our allocation has run out, please let us know and we will try to have more rooms added to our allocation for you – no guarantees though, I’m afraid. There are other hotels in the immediate vicinity that may be able to offer alternatives for you.

Together with our other trade representatives, we are very pleased to be welcoming Charnwood machinery to UKIWS in June who will be attending for the weekend with a selection of their woodturning lathes and accessories. This leaves limited space for other trade stands at the event…if you are in the trade, or know a business who would benefit from attending, send them our way and we’ll be very pleased to accommodate them.

If you have any queries about the tickets or the event in general, please contact Martin or give him a call on 07713 349883 and he will be very pleased to help. In the meantime, please do visit our sponsor’s websites who are supporting the event and looking forward to meeting you all, the same as we are!

All the best for now, and we look forward to seeing you in Coventry!

Martin, Steve, Mike and Rob
