The Ideal Home Show returns to Olympia London in 2015

Published: 16 December 2014
Britain's biggest consumer home event, the Ideal Home Show is to return to its original roots at Olympia London in March 2015.
Dating back to 1908, when it was first launched at Olympia, the UK's most famous home show will be welcoming visitors across the 17-day run from March 20. The Ideal Home Show will officially close its doors at Earls Court on November 23, with the Christmas edition of the show marking the last-ever exhibition to be held at the iconic venue.

To celebrate its homecoming, the 2015 show is set to be bigger and better than ever before in its new location spread across three halls, with bigger brands and three full scale show homes.

Lee Newton, ceo of Ideal Home Show organisers Media 10, said: "Our award-winning home show has always been at the forefront of British home trends and inspiration and it's exciting to be returning to Olympia London where it all began. After an exceptional few decades at Earls Court, we look forward to bringing our visitors everything they need for their homes under our new roof."

The exhibition will feature seven dedicated sections, including the flagship Ideal Show Homes, Ideal Home Improvements, Ideal Interiors, Ideal Gardens sponsored by Hydropool, Ideal Technology, Ideal Food and Housewares sponsored by Regina, as well as Ideal Shopping.

The show's celebrity ambassadors will be making an appearance, including TV presenter and architect George Clarke, gadget expert Suzi Perry, food critic Gregg Wallace, interiors icon Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, and returning favourite Alan Titchmarsh as this year's gardening expert.

The Ideal Wallpaper Designer of the Year competition is also back, offering budding interior designers the chance to design and submit their own wallpaper design, with a shortlist selected by the show's own interiors ambassador, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen. The final shortlist of designs will be put to a public vote and showcased live on the Ideal Super Theatre.

The Ideal Home Show 2015 will run March - April 6 at Olympia London. For more information visit
