We have been working hard over the last few weeks to plan as best we can for the future. As you know we had rescheduled the KDF Summer Show for July 17th & 18th. As we have no advice from the Government about when the lockdown will end & what will be the policies after the lockdown, we have decided that we will cancel the KDF Summer Show at Kensington Town Hall, but will replace it with the KDF Online Showcase taking place over the July dates instead (July 17th, 18th & 19th).
KDF ONLINE SHOWCASE
We were very aware that if we cancelled the July Show, there would be many makers who had been working hard creating beautiful work for the Festival & would need somewhere else to sell it. This is where the idea began to host an online event that will enable exhibitors to promote & sell the work they have created for the KDF.
This project is the beginning of an overhaul of our current website. We are planning a site that will represent the incredibly high quality of work that can be seen at the Festival by making a glossy, magazine style platform where exhibitors & collectors can go to search everything they need for their latest project. We would feature artists & POI & have the ultimate list of craftsmen & suppliers working in miniature.
This list will be where we start for the online event in July. Each exhibitor that was registered to attend the KDF Summer Show, will have a page of their own there they can promote the new work they have created for the Festival. It will be the one place to go to see all their fantastic new work.
This will be a unique event for this summer only, although we will continue to have a profile page for all our exhibitors for future shows. The new website will work alongside our events to make it easy for customers to contact makers in between shows.
This is a BIG project & we are really excited to have some time to plan & begin this new part of KDF. We will be contacting all our regular visitors to KDF with more information about the Online Showcase in due course, or please contact us in the office for more info.
As KDF Summer has gone on line this year, we have also decided to extend the KDF Christmas Show to 2 days. The Show will take place on November 28th & 29th (Saturday & Sunday). This will mean we can really make it a special event.
If you have any questions about the changes to the KDF Christmas Show, please contact LDF HQ.
PERFECTION IN MINIATURE AWARDS 2020
We have decided to reschedule the judging of the PIMA again to coincide with the Christmas Show where all entries will be displayed. We also plan to have the judging & display of all the entries in our PIMA Open Competition at the Christmas Show too.
If you have any questions about the PIMA, please contact the LDF HQ.
I know this is a lot to take in. We are very upset not to be able to host our Kensington Show this May. (it will be the 1st time there has not been a KDF at Kensington Town Hall in May since we started back in 1985) & I hope there will be no more changes to our schedule, but we can only continue to be positive about the current situation & plan as best we can for the future.
We will continue to keep you updated with all our news over the next months, please try to follow us on Facebook & Instagram to see what we are up to.
Keep safe & use this precious time to enjoy your miniature world as much as you can.
