The Christmas Ideal Home Show has everything under one roof, making it the ultimate Christmas shopping experience, and much more besides.
What is the Ideal Home Christmas Show?
The Ideal Home Show, held at Earls Court in London, is synonymous with choice. It brings together everything you could possibly think of to improve your home, all under one roof. The show gives exhibitors an arena in which to promote their products, as well as offering visitors useful and informative demonstrations. Get tempted by self-cleaning hot tubs from Hydropool or find out how water filters from Kinetico can improve your quality of life at home. Help is at hand with creative and inspirational ideas for how to improve and enhance your home.
The Christmas edition of the show is no exception, but the advice and improvement suggestions slant, naturally, towards Christmas. However, it’s not all about home improvements. The Christmas show offers a huge variety of tips covering seasonal food and drink, with Christmas decoration and gift ideas. The show also provides entertainment for all the family, with a smattering of guest-stars and famous faces along the way. With over 650 exhibitors, covering seven different sections, the Christmas show will have everything to provide the perfect family day out.
Get the Christmas Feel
Although the show is essentially geared towards home improvements and the ultimate shopping experience, the Christmas extravaganza also offers a huge array of entertainment:
Take a well-earned rest from shopping and get your ice-skating groove on by visiting the centre-stage ice-rink. The rink is perfect for some energetic fun for all the family. There is a bandstand alongside the rink providing seasonal music through a variety of genres (including gospel choirs) to get you in the festive mood.
Food & drink
Perhaps you’ve always had a yearning to discover the secret of how to cook spectacularly crispy roast potatoes; or alternatively, feel the need to spice up your sprouts. If so, the ever-popular live cookery theatre could provide you with the know-how and skills to create a Christmas Day masterpiece. Famous chefs, such as the irrepressible Gino d’Campo, will guide you through the preparation of their own favourite meals, with personal tips and advice. Once you’ve got the culinary side sussed, head over to the Christmas drinks’ theatre, where experts are on hand to offer advice regarding the most suitable drinks to complement your Christmas dinner. After all that you will undoubtedly be in need of some refreshment, so head to Greg Wallace’s Christmas Restaurant and celebrate Christmas early with a specially designed festive menu.
It is easy to get bored when bringing out the same Christmas decorations every year, but that will all change after visiting the show. Discover unique ways to spruce up your decorations in the Christmas theatre and learn how to make your own cards, wreaths, table settings and much more.
If you intend to visit the Christmas show to shop until you drop, you won’t be disappointed. With over 100 exhibitors providing unique gifts not usually found on the high-street, and offering inspirational gift ideas (ranging from household gadgets to stocking fillers), it will be impossible not to find the perfect presents.
Christmas Smart Home
This is where the latest gadgets and technology will be show-cased. If you want to know what the next electronic craze is, then this is the place for you. While you are there, take the opportunity to catch your breath and enjoy a mince pie and hot drink at the Winter cafe.
Although the show naturally slants towards Christmas, the fundamental idea behind the Ideal Home Show is to provide the products, advice and tools to improve your home. So if you’re after tips on how to re-decorate a particular room; or want some ideas and inspiration on how to spruce up your home by adding a few artistic touches, then this is the place for you. The show hosts a section that will help answer all your questions and decorating dilemmas, by offering invaluable advice from specialists and representatives from top quality brands.
It goes without saying that the Ideal Home Christmas Show is jam-packed with things to see and do. In fact, without careful planning, the huge choice could mean that you miss out on something special. It is therefore imperative that you plan your visit in advance, thus ensuring that you don’t miss a minute of the fun!
