Another great day out - The Grand Designs 'live' exhibition this October... Covid permitting!

Updated: Jun 8, 2023

We at Mint Builders like a good day out at a tip top 'live' show offering all kinds of products and ideas about home extensions, renovations, home re-organising and even re-building too.

Here on this blog recently we highlighted the ‘going live’ return of the Homebuilding and Renovation Shows across the country, so we were delighted to hear also that in October - not so far away from us in Cheltenham at the NEC in Birmingham in October it’s the 'Grand Designs Live' exhibition.

The excellent HomeOwners Alliance have teamed up with the show offering Free Tickets for the event running from October 6th-10th.
