For the first time this year, the show will be supported by masterclasses from the Land Hub, a self-build stage in collaboration with Plotfinder and Potton’s Self-Build Academy.
The event will see the return of Sian Astley, 'lady-builder' and project manager for BBC2’s ‘Your Home Made Perfect’. Drawing from her extensive knowledge, accumulated over 23 years, Astley will tackle themes ranging from fresh design ideas, cost-effective styling, and mixing traditional style with a contemporary edge, to underfloor heating and insulation.
Jo Dyson, property renovator, interiors specialist and founding partner of home design consultancy Mae House Design, will also be in attendance. She will offer essential advice and expertise on re-modelling, re-designing and restoring the home.
Over the three days, attendees can access expert support on all aspects of self-build and renovation, no matter the phase of a building or renovation project.
Those interested will be able to find up-to-date information on a vast range of topics including renovating, building your own home, extensions and conversions, eco and heating, doors and windows and more – discussed extensively by specialists at over 45 free seminars and masterclasses.
Consumers will also have the chance to discover innovative products and services from over 360 national and local brands that will be exhibiting. In addition, they will be able to interact with real case studies on site to discover the most common challenges they might encounter during the build process.
What’s more, self-builders and renovators who are keen to run their ideas past property experts are encouraged to visit the ‘Ask the Expert’ area inside The Advice Centre, sponsored by windows and doors manufacturer Internorm.
This section will also house the ‘Ask the Builder’ zone, where members of the Federation of Master Builders will offer tips to visitors on hiring accredited construction workers.
Those looking to find out more about the design, planning and construction process can visit the ‘Ask the Architect’ area in The Advice Centre, where chartered specialists from RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects) will provide tailored advice and support via one-on-one consultations.
All attendees can navigate their way on site, schedule and receive alerts for key seminars, browse through the list of professionals available and access the latest offers and information with the help of the show app, available on iOS and Android.
