BAMM is excited to announce The Peter Swords King course will be starting in August with every step being taken to safeguard the health and wellbeing of students, teachers and models.

It’s been a challenging time for all and as disappointing as it was to pause temporarily, the team has been busy behind the scenes updating courses with two exciting bolt-on subjects; Fashion and Creature Creations.

In addition, the website, school and garden have had a make-over ready for when the doors reopen so BAMM can continue to teach and train the next generation of media makeup masters in the safest possible way. More on the safety measures below.

But first…what have you missed? BAMM used the latest technology to hold a virtual Open Day which was a great success. Prospective students were given a tour and the low-down on the fantastic courses from BAMM’s Creative Director Peter Swords King. He was joined by his main apprentice and BAMM graduate Megan Leigh who gave a valuable insight into her career journey. For those who couldn’t make the live event, a private Zoom chat can be arranged with Peter and Academy Founder and Principal Melanie Weekley. A safely distanced face-to-face can  also accommodated at the beautiful BAMM gardens in Bath.


BAMM’S training calendar restarts in August with the signature Peter Swords King course, designed by the Oscar and BAFTA-award winning makeup master. Follow in the footsteps of BAMM’S course graduates who’ve gone on to work on The Witches, Star Wars, Mary Poppins, Poldark, Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Spiderman to name a few. 

You too could be kick-starting a fantastic career in the world of TV and film makeup whether you are new to the industry or expanding your skills. The course runs from August 31st – 18th December 2020.
