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.
