JAMES ROUSE JOINS THE CRAFTWORKS @ BBH LINE-UP
20 November 2019

Top director James Rouse will be joining us on Wednesday 27th November when we head to BBH for our next CraftWorks event. Nick Kidney will also be appearing alongside DOM&NIC and Adam Smyth on our Experian panel. The line-up is now almost complete and you can join us for the accrued wisdom of our guests if you're willing to part with £25 - the cost of two-thirds of a glass of rosé on the Carlton Terrace in June.

Tickets are available by clicking this link.


James Rouse! I love James Rouse! Everyone loves James Rouse... and that's why we're so happy he's joining us.


Who's doing the Strictly slot? We've got Anna Arnell, Justin Tindall and Sue Higgs offering their pithy assessments of this year's Christmas ads. And Antoinette doing the scores... obviously!


Oh fun. What else? We'll have the winner of this year's Homespun Yarns competition, alongside their mentor and the editor who helped throw it all together.


Can you be more specific? Not yet! The winner will be decided and announced at Homespun's big night on Thursday.


Exciting stuff! What else? We'll be taking a look at a beautifully crafted commercial for Experian in the company of BBH's Nick Kidney; directors DOM&NIC and the sound designer - Adam Smyth of String & Tins.


Love that ad. Anyone else? Yes, we'll also be joined by 2AM's Daniel Dewsbury - an extraordinary filmmaker whose documentary series 'Crime & Punishment' was broadcast on Channel 4 a little while ago. He also made the outstanding series 'The Mighty Redcar'.


That's going to be quite the show. It is. And there may be one more guest we're yet to announce.


You tease. You got it. More information and tickets are available by clicking this link.
