Here's what our visitors had to say about our recent shows:

"Exceptional. One year in to finding land as an aspiring self-builder, the quality of in-person and virtual training, and ready access to professionals at the centre is beyond brilliant. Harvey and his team and the expansive range of professionals he sources to provide advice have a warm, receptive, supportive and non-sales-pushy approach to engaging and guiding us with making big and often expensive decisions. Harvey's family-like, kind team and fully present leadership approach is reassuring and refreshing in this competitive property space. Well done Team NSBRC!"

"Fantastic to meet expert traders that are passionate and knowledgeable about their products and the environment and are willing to help fill in the gaps! We had a positive and helpful day out and came home inspired to crack on with more of out eco renovation."

"As complete novices and newbies this was a great introduction. It provided a starting point on things to consider should we chose to embark on a self build journey. We now know where our first port of call will be for guidance and advice. I’d recommend anyone thinking about dipping their toe to go here first."

"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!! :)"

"Easy to get to and plenty of parking. Well organised with lots of friendly and experienced industry experts to talk to. Useful displays, talks, buildings. Thoroughly recommend if you need advice about a self build or renovation project."

"For anyone embarking on a self-build journey, this must absolutely be the starting point. It has plenty of exhibits on the various technologies that underpin the process, along with numerous experts and service providers ready to engage. In my visits here over six years, I have found that the exhibits have been updated and all new and emerging technologies are showcased. This is also a point where you can get multiple contacts for planning, design and mortgage."

This show will be held as a live event at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon.
