Ideal Home Show, sponsored by Zoopla, the world’s longest running exhibition, will return to Olympia London from Friday 22nd March to Sunday 7th April 2019.

Celebrating its 111th year with a Best of British theme, the show will feature more than 600 exhibitors, the biggest ever show home, and demonstrations.

Expert guests will host workshops on stage, including DIY expert and TV presenter Nick Knowles, property expert Phil Spencer, renowned British chef Rosemary Shrager and actress and chef Lisa Faulkner.

From gardens to interiors and housewares through to gadgets, Ideal Home Show, sponsored by Zoopla, has everything for every room in your home. Across 17 days visitors will find accessory inspiration for the living room, space maximising ideas for the office, decorating ideas and the latest trends for the kitchen and bathroom.



Other famous faces who will be sharing their best tips and advice include:
Joe Swift, English garden designer, journalist and television personality
Olly Smith, drinks expert and TV presenter
David Domoney, presenter of Love Your Garden
Kunle Barker, property expert and TV presenter
Max McMurdo, upcycling expert
Skinny Jean Gardener (Lee Connelly), gardener and children’s TV personality



This year’s spectacular first-of-its-kind, life-size Evolving Home will be the main focal point of the show village. With a focus on adaptable and open-plan living to maximise light in the home, this modular structure can be extended easily and quickly to create an even larger, or differently configured home as the owners’ lifestyles change. Visitors to the show can take away ideas from different sections of the house to use in their existing properties, from adding extra space with a modular extension to letting in light with smart windows and open-plan layouts.

Bringing to life the ‘Best of British’ theme, four specially-designed rooms will be on display to reflect the British Monarchy. Featuring a 70s inspired vintage living room for Prince Charles and Camilla, and a family living room and garden with a vertical living wall for Will and Kate, the ‘Rooms for Royals’ show all that the show has to offer, in right regal fashion.

The 360° Home Theatre will take visitors on an immersive 360-degree tour of the latest trends in architecture and design. There is no need for a head set in this incredible immersive virtual experience – meaning you can share the experience with friends and loved ones and make notes as you go along.

In the nearby ‘Super Theatre’ sponsored by Zoopla, there will be insider tips from celebrity guests and experts on topics such as gardening, upcycling, interior design trends and home renovation. There will also be a virtual-reality tour through the Evolving Home and a virtual reality experience hosted by gadget guru Lee Baldry. Guests can also book in to the Expert Advice Hub for a free, 30-minute, one-to-one advice session from a range of experts including finance, property and interiors experts.

For the green fingered, there will be four themed garden designs sponsored by Flymo including; upcycled, modern contemporary, a family fun garden and a grower’s garden. Visitors can also treat themselves to some down time, courtesy of London College of Beauty Therapy who will be offering free pamper sessions including manicures, hair braiding and make-up.

New this year, a Best of British pub quiz will be hosted by Boycie from Only Fools and Horses in the show’s very own The Nag’s Head, sponsored by Britelite Windows, on Thursday 28th March. Ideal Home Show’s charity partner Maggie’s is also hosting Kitchen Table day on 29th March, with raffle prizes worth over £10,000 up for grabs.

Additionally, ticketholders will also have access to the Eat & Drink Festival, which is co-located with the Ideal Home Show, for no extra charge from Friday 22nd March to Sunday 7th April 2019.

The UK’s favourite indoor food festival is set to give foodies a taste of the best drinks and cuisines in the country, as well as appearances and talks from some of Britain’s best chefs and presenters, including drinks expert and TV presenter Olly Smith, and celebrity chefs Aldo Zilli and Eric Lanlard, as well as many more.
