We know that it’s important to get the expert advice and inspiration you need for your home project, so we’re transforming the live show you know and love into a virtual event. The event will be hosted online for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home and will provide all the expert advice, inspiring sessions and access to the products and services you’ll need to make your dreams a reality. We hope that it will be even easier for you to enjoy our show, with no travel, risk or cost.
