With fascinating seminars and debates taking place at Grand Designs Live sponsored by Anglian Home Improvements throughout each day, it’s important that you know exactly where you need to be to avoid missing out. See below for the full theatre timetables and make sure you don't miss a thing!
- 11:00 TV’S GRAND DESIGNS GO LIVE: THE MILTON KEYNES ‘DOUGHNUT’ Open or Close
- 12:00 HOME TECH LIVE EXTRAVAGANZA Open or Close
Our unlikely resident techno-nerd Lucy Hedges gathers her favourite gadgets from The TechBox and puts them through their paces live on stage. Plus a report from the 3D Printed House in Holland. Now what was that robot's name again?
- 13:00 KEVIN’S SUPERSIZED SALVAGE WORKSHOP – LIVE Open or Close
In a first for Grand Designs Live, Kevin and one of his Supersized Salvage designer makers, Harry Dwyer, demonstrate with the full kit of tools and equipment just how simple it is (or is not, as the case may be) to turn an Airbus A320 into a range of useful products. Watch a chair take shape before your very eyes!
- 14:30 THE EDIBLE URBAN GARDEN Open or Close
Mark Diacono, former head gardener at High Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage, now runs the UK's only climate change farm. Working with the show's 'Urban Allotment' feature, he presents a range of unlikely fruit and vegetables you can grow (with some luck!) in town or country, and regales us with tasty samples.
- 16:00 SELF BUILD ON A SHOESTRING COMPETITION Open or Close
The National Self Build Association's Ted Stevens and Kevin McCloud present the short list and winners of the 'Self Build on A Shoestring Competition', in which entrants had to design a development of 20 homes on a typical urban site that can be built for less than £75,000 each.
