London Media Make-up IMATS

Prices from: £169 (17-18 May 2019)

We are delighted to offer show packages, including travel and accommodation for London’s IMATS 2019*.

IMATS is returning to London Olympia in 2019 after another very successful event last year. London’s leading Media Make-Up event has become a phenomenal learning experience for aspiring makeup artists, which allows students to develop their skills in the industry, network with professionals and buy the hottest new cosmetic products. 

The event will showcase a variety of live demonstrations with world-leading makeup specialists, vendors offering impressive discounts and of course, exciting student competitions including Battle of the Brushes, where students rush against the clock to create remarkable winning looks.

For students interested in establishing an artist career in film, theatre, fashion and TV, this event has all the media makeup tips you need! Complement your trip with some of London’s most iconic attractions, such as the London Eye, River Cruises along the Thames, the Making of Harry Potter and undoubtedly a West End Theatre Show where you can witness the importance of media make-up in action.


Contact Adaptable Travel today and we’ll be thrilled to help you start organising an unforgettable trip to IMATS 2019.


*Minimum group size must consist of 10 paying passengers.

wolverhampton GB
Hotel was too far out at Croydon meaning on the Friday morning we spent ages in traffic on the M25 to get from the hotel at 9am sharp to the National History Museum. This meant we could only visit one theatre and not two.

The timings to get from Wolv to London to do the London Eye were also unrealistic so I had to do a live chat to put the booking back 2 hours as we were still travelling down. This was fine but more realistic timings and a closer hotel would be wanted in the future.

Finally, it wasn't great to have to jump on two different coaches on the Thursday night after the Mama Mia show as this meant ringing the new coach drivers and having to jump on two new coaches we didn't recognise outside of a busy theatre at 10:30pm at night with 85 of us to account for. The air conditioning on the top tier of the double-decker bus also didn't work and this wasn't good due to the hot weather we've been having. No toilet roll was also supplied for the travelling on the coach which was also problematic.

Harry Potter studio tour was amazing and all of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Very tiring but well worth it
