In addition to all the old show favourites – such as distinct sections for every area of your home, live demonstrations, and room sets – this year’s show will be bringing a few new features that are guaranteed to inspire and delight home owners and décor lovers. The show includes water wise garden sets, free DIY workshops, kitchen experts for instant advice in the Grand Kitchens Area, and a champagne and cocktail bar.
What To Expect At Grand Designs Live?
The entrance at this year’s show is going to feel completely different, as show goers will experience the incredible Central Boulevard Lampshades, a series of oversized lampshades hanging from the ceiling covered in fabrics from Black Fabrics. And once guests have walked through this magical boulevard, they will come across an exciting new central feature – a massive interactive area featuring the best in design trends, expert opinions, and celebrity savvy advice. This space is split into two, The Easylife Kitchens Celebrity Chefs Theatre and The Waterwise Garden Theatre.
The Waterwise Garden Theatre is an informative and inspirational place where guests can engage with the realities of South Africa’s water dilemma. This is where you can find ways to use water more wisely. There will be four luscious Garden sets brought to you by the Guild of Landscapers including Indigo Landscapes, Spargo Landscape Consultants, Complex Gardens, and Green Dimensions.
The Easylife Kitchens Celebrity Chefs Theatre will be hosting much-loved celebrity foodies, including the highly experienced Adrian Vaughn of Lacuna Bistro at The Maslow Hotel, creative Amy Butler from the Food Design Agency, multi award-winning Jonathan Roos at the Inter-continental OR Tambo, and Pastry Chef Minette Smith, who will be sampling, demonstrating, and sharing advice on how to create the perfect meal.
This space backs into Grand Interior which displays uniquely styled room sets, featuring bespoke creations by Nicola Davis Interiors, Create Space Lab, House and Leisure Magazines Room Sets, Megan Parker Interiors, and Prime Home. These highly respected names will ensure that this is not just a beautiful space, but an idea hub.
Grand Build will feature an incredible, instructive DIY Theatre, courtesy of Black+Decker. The DIY Theatre will also play host to experts who will be giving all the secrets and tips needed to make your home improvement experience simpler. Brand new to the show is the FREE Black+Decker DIY Workshops where you’ll get to roll up your sleeves and get involved with fun and exciting activities aimed at bringing out your inner handyman or woman.
