Make your dreams a reality

Spring Summer Show

The popular ‘National Self Build & Renovation Show’ returns in May. The event is perfect for anyone interested in creating a well-designed, healthy and efficient home.

Three and a half thousand visitors attended January’s show which was officially opened by Martin Roberts, longstanding presenter of the BBC’s ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ and recent survivor of the Celebrity Jungle.

The May Show, produced by the team at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) is an exciting, friendly and inspirational event. It’s the ideal opportunity to discover how the concept of ‘self building’ your own home works or to simply explore the options for injecting new life into your existing home.

The show offers a packed three days of live demonstrations, free seminars and case studies along with an unrivalled line up of experts on hand to share their advice and knowledge.

From planning news to budgeting, plot finding and building regulations, the free talks allow newcomers and skilled professionals alike to pick up a wealth of valuable information.

Over 200 exhibitors will showcase their latest products and technologies, with experienced representatives on hand to demonstrate, answer questions and offer their professional advice.
