If you've ever watched Grand Designs and it's got you dreaming of your own wonderful project (whether that's as large as a house, or just tackling that room you've been meaning to spruce up for years), here's your chance to make it a reality.
Presented by the show's host and all-round design supremo Kevin McCloud, it features over 500 exhibitors, hundreds of limited-edition items and seven areas covering everything from bathrooms to kitchens or lounges to gardens.
The Grand Village is a main highlight of the show and reflects the ethos of Grand Designs; unique architecture, innovation and environmental awareness. See the latest conceptual, eco-friendly and sustainable structures and explore buildings to discover the latest techniques and ideas for self-build projects and eco developments.
If you're pondering the latest in home gadgets and technology, the Grand Tech Hub is where you want to be: it'll feature regular talks covering topics such as Security & Control, Entertainment, Energy & Lighting, Health and Appliances.
Maybe you fancy learning some furniture making? Or want to pick up some top tips for DIY? Head to the Self Build Centre, where you'll get all the inspiration you need.
Snooping around other people's homes is always a fun way to get ideas for your own. The RIBA House of the Year Model Village allows you to look at all the models made by architects for the shortlisted buildings in 2015’s RIBA House of the Year competition. Complete with sketches, drawings and images of the completed works, if you;re looking for exceptional design, this is your perfect place.
Go green with the best eco-innovations at Kevin McCloud's Green Homes, where there's a display of the items hand-picked by McCloud as being outstanding for being environmentally-friendly.
Perhaps there's a problem you've been pondering and don't know where to turn? Make for the area called Ask an Expert, where you will be able to quiz professionals and (hopefully) find the answer.
One thing's for sure: you'll have everything you need to make your Grand Design dreams a reality.
