A tableware design company from the district had pride of place at the BAFTAS earlier this month after supplying table mats to the event for the fourth year running.

Great Easton company Yellow Pumpkin was asked to produce the mats for the official after-party dinner held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London following Sunday night’s awards event.

Yellow Pumpkin’s specially designed bespoke mats featured stills from all of this year’s nominations, including The Theory of Everything, Boyhood, The Imitation Game, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman.

The mats proved popular with the star-studded diners and were quickly snapped up as souvenirs.

Richard Booth, who runs Yellow Pumpkin with his wife Jane, said: “It’s an honour to be asked again to produce these stunning mats for an incredible event like the BAFTAs.

“And it’s a great feeling knowing that some very famous people in the film industry have been casting their eyes over our handiwork.”

Sophie Klein, the event co-ordinator for BAFTA, said: “We keep coming back to Yellow Pumpkin because we can be sure they’ll produce and deliver an excellent product that makes a real statement on the table.

“They know how important an event like the British Academy Film Awards is and their work reflects the spirit and sophistication of the evening.”

Richard and Jane set up Yellow Pumpkin in 2009 and design and produce bespoke, high-quality mats and other tableware for corporate events, special occasions and everyday use for customers across the UK.
