The Festival of Quilts Exhibition 2017
When sending an entry to the Festival from the USA, you should choose a reputable courier company who offers a track and trace facility. This enables both yourself and Bill Bowden Event Logistics to trace your quilt.
When you have your labels, you need to send the quilt to
Upper Street Events
c/o Bill Bowden Event Logistics Ltd
Unit 4 The Bell Centre,Newton Road
Crawley,West Sussex.RH10 9FZ.UK
Tel +44 203 475 2700 / Contact: Debbie Wickson / Bill Bowden
As there are no other locations to courier your quilt to.
We appreciate the effort that has gone into your quilt but we must advise you that UK Customs will apply UK Import Duty & VAT (Value added Tax) when the entry is imported.
Please note that the lower the value of the quilt, the lower the Duty & VAT.
When arranging your courier, there will be a section on the couriers’ documentation regarding import duties. You need to tick the box that reads ‘Bill Import Duties to Sender’ as Bill Bowden Event Logistics will not accept these on your behalf and we will have to refuse receipt of your entry.
VERY IMPORTANT Please do not dispatch your quilt unless it is labelled using the entry labels provided. You should contact the organiser if you have not received these.
