Much success at Folkestone!  in competition with Paintd√©monium across the channel this year !!!

Would you mind to find a couple of photographs to take pictures of all flats exposed in the competition? and with the organisers get a list of the painters and titles of their works ?  I am at 5 hours flying time from there now, unable to come, attend and do this mself.

Thank you for the support of the BFFS team for this !!!  You can then load the pictures, and if useful I can clean them after and you wll selecte the best of the two.

Well what can I say, I was there as a trader and I think we did quite well considering the amount of people, 
there was no one there!!!!
Comp was very low in numbers in all classes and judging took no time compared to previous years.
A great time was had and the BFFS had a great stand of some new figures , Nick's Jack and the beanstalk is a lovely little figure just a shame the castings are still in the post, but as said we had a great time but I don't think it was to do with the show. 

There was still competition and this was still hard so a big well done to our lads Nick, Trevor (Golds) and Chris (the Lynn Sangster memorial trophy) still showing how it's done.

 Thank to the four who make the show, thanks guys but it's going to be a big jump of faith to hold the show next year but if they do we'll be there!!!

May be unfortunately the effect of the Brexit !

The wonderful love of Europe for Great Britain has received a shock with perspectives of taxes, visas and rejection of Europe by the British community...

Very unfortunate, but Brexit has consequences, perhaps not well explained before voting...

Unless the reason is to be looked at the habit to attend this event in September since the XXIIth Century and the change of dates has  caused some troubles in planning annual events ((like moving S√®vres in ... September instead of December ??)

Any new works, US visitors, pictures?

Nothing to do with Brexit, just a change of date the organisers had been warned about. Alain and a few of your fellow members turned up, which was well appreciated by the BFFS
