If you want to know more about what's involved in a self-build project, or you're thinking about improving your home, The Southern Homebuilding and Renovating Show at Sandown Park in Surrey is well worth a visit

Attend talks, seminars and practical workshops

A weekend to put aside in next year's diary: The show takes place at Sandown Park in Surrey over the weekend of 27-28 June 2020. Hear from experts in self-building and home renovation and take advantage of free 15-minute advice sessions during which you can discuss your plans or projects. 

More of us are likely to become involved in self-building over the coming years if local authorities around the country are willing and able to make land available at affordable prices. But just what is involved in taking on such a project?

Architects, planners and chartered surveyors are among some of the experts visitors to The Southern Homebuilding and Renovating Show will be able to talk to during the show, which takes place 27-28 June 2020 at Sandown Park in Surrey. 

Book a free 15-minute consultation, or attend a host of seminars, talks and workshops. Topics include how to win planning permission, project management and cost control and how to build and renovate in the most sustainable way.

Architects will be on hand to discuss your project with you

Among the experts who'll be on hand throughout the show are experienced chartered surveyor Bob Branscombe, who worked on the Shard building in London, and the man who knows everything about DIY, Mike Edwards. You'll also have the chance to brush up on your DIY skills during workshops on tiling, plumbing and plastering, while Dulux will be on hand to offer its design services - especially useful if you need help with colour schemes.

Among exhibitors are Oakwrights, which can offer advice on oak- framed houses, and Kingspan Potton, which makes timber building products.
