DIY Doctor are at the Ideal Home Show at Earls Court all this week so if you would like to visit the Doctor then come along to our stand (IR69) which is adjacent to the ‘How To’ Theatre where we will be presenting throughout this week.
Here are some highlights of the many brilliant things to see today:
Mark Wilkinson is presenting on the ‘How To’ Theatre from noon today. Mark lives in the West Country and has been awarded the OBE for his services to furniture design and to charity in 2010. He will be presenting his latest range Shan Gara.
Stay on at the ‘How To’ theatre after Mark to see DIY Ddoctor’s presentation on ‘How to Avoid Cowboy Builders’ at 1pm.
For the fashionistas amongst you there are Live Fashion Shows on throughout the day on the Catwalk.
If you like your celebrity food then check out the Greg Wallace Café on the upper level of the show, for some delicious British food.
Today’s interesting fact: Did you know that for every ticket sold 50p goes to the Homes for the Heroes campaign?
This weekend the Ideal Home Show opened its doors for the 103rd time. DIY Doctor’s Mike Edwards, along with other celebrities, presented to large crowds at the ‘How To’ theatre. He was giving tips on skim plastering, tiling a bathroom and how to avoid cowboy builders.
Mike shared the stage with George Clarke, Linda Barker and Diarmuid Gavin as they all discussed their experiences on DIY, home renovation, interior design and garden design.
Linda Barker showed the audience how to save money by renovating old furniture into ‘custom chic’. George Clarke gave his first-hand experiences of renovating his own home to alter a challenging space into a usable home, and Diarmuid Gavin took us on a trip down memory lane to contrast the gardens of today with the ‘garden design’ of his childhood (mainly lobelia and alyssum in blue and white rows!).
Mike’s set on ‘How To Avoid Cowboy Builders’ was particularly well received, and a number of people stayed behind after the talk to share their own experiences with bad builders, and to say how pleased they were that DIY Doctor are tackling this problem which affects so many homeowners.
