DIY Doctor at Shows – Tricks of the Trade Theatres, Workshops and Tool Shows

DIY Doctor attends numerous shows in any one year. We are invited to these shows to help teach people specific DIY skills or help them choose and buy the right power tools for their latest project.

We run Tricks of the Trade theatres, workshops and tools shows at these events. We love these shows as they allow us to get out and meet DIY-ers face to face and hear about the projects that they are doing.

Hearing directly from you about the DIY challenges that you face is one of the most pleasurable experience that we have here are DIY Doctor.

It is also fascinating to meet the companies that are exhibiting at these shows and discover all the new and exciting products that are coming to market all the time. This is another extremely interesting part of working with DIY Doctor; finding and trying out the latest innovations that people dream up.

We feel very privileged to have these opportunities!

Here are some of the shows that we attend – please come and see us when if you get a chance:

The Home Building and Renovating Shows

This is a series of shows across the country that target those that are either renovating or self building. They tend to attract accomplished DIY enthusiasts and self builders and renovators with serious projects.

Alongside these shows, and running at the same time, are the Home Improvement Shows which are focused on smaller projects, interiors and lighter, improvement based projects. By having both these shows under the same roof at the same time, there really is something for everyone!

There are shows all over the country from the West Country, through Birmingham right up to Scotland. For more information about where the shows are held and the dates please have a look their website:

The 50+ Show

The 50+ Shows are shows that are targeted at, you guessed it, those over 50! This section of the population have retired, or are approaching retirement. They tend to be very keen DIY enthusiasts and hobbyists and many of them are embarking on a self build project to provide them with the home they have dreamed of for all of their working lives.

DIY Doctor gets a large proportion of it's readership from this demographic and therefore it is a fantastic place to be able to demonstrate DIY techniques and skills.

The 50+ Shows are also held all over the country, through out the year. The next show that DIY Doctor are attending is the show in Exeter from the 19-20 September 2014. Please find out more details of the shows in your area on the 50+ Show website and also claim your free tickets here:
