Body painting festival at Eden


The Eden Project has been announced as the location for the fifth annual BodyFactory International Body Painting Festival next year.

During the event, which takes place on October 10 and 11, 2015, body painting artists from around the world will be competing to create spectacular creations.

There will also be exhibitions and demonstrations taking place around the site on the Sunday, themed around the exotic surroundings of the Eden Project.

BodyFactory was set up by Nicola Langridge and her husband Pete, following a small gathering of local painters in Cornwall in 2010. The event has kept on growing ever since and the move to Eden is expected to inspire even more people to take part and find out about this innovative art form.

Nicola Langridge said: “BodyFactory is now approaching its fifth consecutive year and has become a recognised event across the body painting industry.

“We are constantly expanding and evolving the event and are proud to be in partnership with the globally renowned Eden Project, providing an exceptional backdrop to the colourful and artistic world of body painting.”

Emma Hogg, Eden Live programme producer, said: “Body painting is really taking off as an art-form in the UK, so it is very exciting to welcome BodyFactory to the Eden Project in 2015. With such an inspiring backdrop, we’re looking forward to seeing some truly unique designs throughout the weekend.”
