The DIY School at Grand Designs London Live Everyone loves Grand Designs, as Kevin McCloud follows the progress of ordinary folk, just like us, as they take on their own grand design renovation or building project. But there is much more to Grand Designs than just the TV show. Kevin and the Grand Designs team have produced countless books providing advice and inspiration to prospective DIY-ers, and they also put on a hugely popular show each year at London’s ExCel Exhibition Centre, called Grand Designs Live. One of the highlights of the Grand Designs Live show is the Grand Interiors Theatre, where experts from across the industry pass on their hints and tips, skills and specialist knowledge to the audience. There is a wide range of demonstrations and lectures throughout the show, covering a huge spectrum of skills. The DIY School are delighted to have been invited to take part in the Grand Interiors Theatre for this years show, which runs from 5th to 13th May. Our founder, Simon Bessell, will take to the stage to share his experience and skills, alongside other key industry figures, such as Emma Hughes from Heals Home Interiors, Nicholas Sunderland from NS Interiors, Nicola Burt from Finishing Touch Interior Design and Decoration, and rising star Sarah-Jayne Guest from SJ Guest Designs. We hope you have the chance to visit The DIY School at the Grand Designs Live show, as it will give you the inspiration and the kick start to get that long planned project under way. Remember, whatever skills you need to complete your project, you can learn quickly and professionally in just a few days at the DIY School. So get grand designing today with a little help from Grand Designs Live and the DIY School.
