The Ideal Home Show is the world’s longest running exhibition, established in 1908 by the Daily Mail, when the UK’s first ‘skyscraper’ – The Royal Liver Building in Liverpool – was being constructed. Since then, the exhibition has proved perennially popular. In 1957, attendance topped a record-breaking 1.5 million visitors.
The show is on for just over two weeks, from Friday 27 March to Monday 13 April.

A regulator will be at the heart of a new regime, and established as part of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), overseeing the design, construction and occupation of high-risk buildings.
The regulator’s role will include publishing consolidated guidance for building owners. Other initiatives include a proposal to extend the cladding ban following the tragic events at Grenfell Tower and a consultation on fire sprinklers, proposing lowering the height threshold for these in new buildings. More widely, a Fire Safety Bill is set to be introduced to Parliament.
