Cornwall Living 2018

Cornwall Home Show Guide

Introducing the Cornwall Home Improvement & Self Build Show 2017, showcasing everything you’ll need to create the dream home.

As autumn arrives each, we always eagerly anticipate the Cornwall Home Improvement & Self Build Show at the Royal Cornwall Showground, which appears to get bigger and better every year. Taking place on 7th and 8th October, Cornwall’s premier home improvement and self-build event brings together the best of the region’s home-related products and services all under one roof. With over 130 exhibitors, covering everything from interiors to gardens, renewables to self-build projects, there really is all you could possibly need to create the home of your dreams.

The event attracts visitors undertaking home improvement, renovations or self-build projects, but also hotels, B&Bs, tourist parks and holiday letting agencies. This event truly offers a wealth of inspiration and ideas, alongside the opportunity to find all the products and services you need. We can honestly say, every year we return inspired to improve our own homes!

Once again, the show hosts its popular ‘Homeware Market’ and ‘A Bite of Cornwall’ Quality Food & Drink Market & Café. Both these features ensure attendees get to take home a little something a little bit special.

What’s more, there’s unlimited free parking at the event (always a bonus, here in Cornwall!), and free entry if you register online. So, without further ado, here’s a preview of just some of the things to expect at this year’s show.
