If property shows are your guilty pleasure, then why not treat yourself to a day out at the UK’s leading contemporary home show, Grand Designs Live London?

You can claim a free pair of tickets, worth up to £34, to the show, which is sponsored by Anglian Home Improvements.

This exciting event, based on the Channel 4 TV show and presented by design guru Kevin McCloud, will return for its 12th year from April 29 to May 7 at ExCeL London. 

Grand Designs Live is the ultimate event to provide inspiration, educate and spark the creativity in all design enthusiasts. It is set across six sections: Build, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Interiors, Technology and Gardens, and the show offers hundreds of innovative ideas for the home, interactive workshops, instructive talks and demonstrations.

Catch Kevin at the Grand Theatre, sponsored by Airflow, get advice from industry heavyweights at the ever-popular Ask An Expert service, sponsored by Express Bi-folding Doors, and see top chefs at work and discover an array of hi-tech appliances at the Living Kitchen, sponsored by Miele.

Kevin’s Green Heroes will return for 2017 to showcase the most pioneering and eco-friendly products on the market, while a new feature, the Grand Shed Project sponsored by AXA Insurance, invites designers to showcase their innovative ideas of how to expand the home by utilising the often-overlooked garden shed as an extension of their living space.

You can also get access to top brands launching new products, compare hundreds of products and prices and check out homewares that are not yet available on the high street.
