Chris Bates, editor for show organiser, Build It magazine, says: “Build It Live attracts all kinds of self-builders and renovators and makes it easy to talk to leading experts who can make designing and building your own home a reality whatever your budget.

“Visitors can also gain inspiration and confidence from Build It readers who have already realised their self-build dreams.

Hear their stories, ask them questions and gain tips on how to avoid common pitfalls.

“So, if you are planning a self-build or renovation project or are looking to add light, space or value to your current home, then a trip to Build It Live will be an essential part of your preparation.”
