A grand affair

Selfbuilder + Homemaker have teamed up with Grand Designs Live to offer our readers 2 for 1 tickets to this year’s event, which is taking place at ExCel in London from 30 April to 8 May

This year’s Grand Designs Live in London is set to include exciting new exhibitors and features, which will join the long-running favourites that have made it popular with the many thousands of visitors who have walked through the doors during the event’s 17-year history. Whether you want to build or renovate your own home or simply redecorate a room, you will find plenty of brilliant ideas and inspiration at Grand Designs Live.

With over 400 companies exhibiting, the show is split into four key sections covering build, kitchens and bathrooms, interiors and gardens. Find everything from architects and building materials, down to lighting and outdoor furniture.


You can book to discuss your build and renovation plans on a one-to-one basis with specialists in architecture, construction, finance, interior design and more in the ‘Ask an Expert’ arena.

Enjoy live talks at the ‘Grand Theatre’ – an entertaining and informative platform where you can hear from the likes of Kevin McCloud, Kunle Barker and various grand designers.

Be inspired by interior room sets and watch designers get the chance to display their creativity in overcoming an interior designs challenge set by the organisers of the show.


Here is the place to find designers who are experts in turning objects and materials into beautiful furniture. You will even be able to buy or commission handmade pieces, as well as gain an insight into their craft through live demonstrations.


Making its debut this May, alongside Grand Designs Live, this new show is dedicated to showcasing eco-friendly products covering all aspects of the eco-home as well as personal transport.

You can find a live theatre stage and advice hub devoted to issues surrounding sustainability and take a tour of the ModPod, Low-Carbon House in partnership with EDF Energy, showcasing how to achieve zero heating bills with free advice on hand. Plus, a selection of innovative eco ideas can be found in the ‘Kevin’s Green Heroes’ feature.
