Ideal Home ShowBritain's biggest consumer home event and a regular fixture since 1908, the Ideal Home Show returns to Olympia London to celebrate its 110th birthday this spring. Featuring everything you need to spruce up your abode, it has the latest in-home renovation, expert advice, hands-on workshops and demonstrations. An annual highlight, The Show Village presents the legendary show homes, with this year's display focused around a spectacular open-water lake. Other highlights include the line-up of celebrity guests, with this year welcoming Phil Spencer, Monica Galetti, Martin Lewis, Sophie Robinson, Martin Roberts and Max McMurdo. New for 2018 is the Renovation Advice Hub, where expert advice will be available, and The Feel Good Stage, where visitors can learn what to eat and how to stay fit. Visitors also get free access to the Eat & Drink Festival, which takes place at Olympia London on the same dates.

 

About Olympia London

Times have changed since the Olympia first flung open its doors to the public on Boxing Day 1886 for the Hippodrome Circus, with the promise of a spectacle involving 400 performers, 300 horses and six "funny" elephants. These days state-of-the-art equipment and a team of skilled in-house technical and support staff are on hand to help event organisers provide both trade and public shows that are top of their class.
