Thank you for visiting September's National Self Build & Renovation Show!

Across 23rd & 24th September, we were delighted to have welcomed over eleven hundred adults (plus several budding self-builders!) to the Centre and we’d like to take a moment to thank all our visitors and experts for joining us for our Autumn Show.

It’s always a pleasure to welcome visitors from near and far (and meet some of our virtual attendees in person!) and the team enjoyed, once again, experiencing the distinct ‘buzz’ throughout the Centre that only comes with a successful live event.

A key highlights for this event included our new ‘Energy Crisis’ sessions, developed based on recent visitor feedback – for which it’ll come as no surprise that there is a clear demand in current times. We hosted our popular ‘Heat & Energy Question Time’ and a dedicated ‘Solar PV Surgery’ with our panel of experts in the Build It Theatre that was well attended both days.

Additionally, we offered guided expert tours of our life-sized educational exhibits, and 1:2:1 expert appointments covering topics from architectural design, building regulations, planning, project management and landscaping - to name just a few.

If you were unable to join us over the Show weekend, don’t worry - as there are plenty of opportunities to continue project research for the rest of 2022, both in-person and virtually.

Our live events coming up at the Centre include:

We also have three online surgeries coming up that you may be interested in attending (delivered via Zoom):

We’d, once again, like to extend a warm ‘thank you’ to all in attendance. We wish you all the best with your homebuilding plans and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Remember, we’re open, six days a week, Tuesday to Sunday - all year round!

If you enjoyed the show, we’d really appreciate a positive Google review. It makes a big difference to our team of employee-owners – who, as I hope we displayed, really care about what we do.

Here's what our September Show visitors had to say:

This is such an awesome resource for self build - whether you are doing a complete build, or just want information on a specific area. There's definitely something to suit every one and it's well worth a visit.


Great show. My partner and I attended today (Saturday) & enjoyed listening to several of the ‘build it theatre’ talks & spoke to several experts on their stands. We learnt so much and have come away even more excited at the prospect of self-build. The welcome staff and cafe staff were also really professional & friendly and the centre lovely and clean. Thank you so much - today has been so helpful!! :)


Great visit to the NSBRC Show yesterday. Very interesting Energy Q&A and some excellent conversations with exhibitors. Very useful for our coming self build. Thanks to all.
