Broadcaster and film aficionado, Claudia Winkleman to host 2017 BASE Awards

London, 24 May 2017. Due to popular demand, Claudia Winkleman will return to Tobacco Dock for the third consecutive year to host the 2017 British Association for Screen Entertainment (BASE) Awards.

The BASE Awards is very proud to welcome back broadcaster and film aficionado Claudia Winkleman as our host for a third consecutive year. Claudia is no stranger to winning awards herself and was nominated for a BAFTA earlier this year for her sterling work as co-host of Strictly Come Dancing.  When not on the dance floor or in the TV studio, Claudia enjoys relaxing in front of a great movie, and counts The Shawshank Redemption, the first two The Godfather movies and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial among her favourites.

The BASE Awards will bring together over 1,000 professionals from across the industry to celebrate success and innovation, and shine a spotlight on the skills and ingenuity powering the category.

Following the fantastic array of colour at the 2016 Awards the 2017 dress code will once again be black (tie) and bright, a celebration of 4K UHD and the vibrancy of the video entertainment industry. Once again 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 2017 BASE Awards will take place at Tobacco Dock on Thursday 8th June. There are now only a limited number of tickets available, so to avoid disappointment ensue that you book now.
