BAFTA Award winner Claudia Winkleman to present 2016 BASE Awards

London, 13 May 2016. Claudia Winkleman returns to Tobacco Dock for the second year to present the 2016 British Association for Screen Entertainment (BASE) awards.

The BASE Awards 2016 promises to be bigger and better than ever before, and with Claudia Winkleman being bought back by popular demand after being such a success last year it will be an event you won’t want to miss. The Awards will bring together over 1,000 professionals from across the industry to celebrate success and shine a spotlight on the skills and innovation powering the category.

Claudia Winkleman presents Strictly Come Dancing, the BBC Film show and The Great British Sewing Bee and has recently taken over as the voice of Sunday nights on BBC Radio 2. Claudia has won the RTS Award for Best Presenter and recently won a BAFTA for Strictly Come Dancing.

Speaking on the event, Claudia said: “I’m thrilled to be invited back to host the BASE Awards, it was such a fun event last year, I can’t wait to do it again on 9th June!”

This year’s dress code is ‘bright and black (tie)’, a celebration of high definition and the vibrancy of the video entertainment industry. We want to see a high dynamic range of colours from the brightest brights to the smartest black ties, to help make the industry event of the year a visual spectacular.

The 2016 BASE Awards will take place at Tobacco Dock on Thursday 9th June. Tickets are nearly sold out for the top video entertainment industry event of the year. If you haven’t got your tickets you’ll need to be quick, this is one you won’t want to miss!
