Show features


Over 150 of the countries leading experts will be at the show to give advice and guidance. Many will be giving practical demonstrations including woodcarving, lead work, plasterwork, window and door manufacturing, etc. Other exhibitors includes English Heritage, architectural historians as well as many commercial suppliers of products particularly suitable for period homes

Conservation Officers

There will be three independent conservation officers within the exhibition who will happily discuss any plans you may have for altering or extending your property. We all know the process of obtaining permission for such work can be very lengthy and a free one-to-one conversation will help you better understand the obligations and requirements. Remember to bring plenty of photographs and sketches of your property with you.

Alongside these officers will be a wide range of very experienced and competent RIBA registered architects all with the expertise and experience to develop your plans to fruition.


The only financial aid given by central government to owners of listed buildings came via VAT. In simple terms, an alteration to a listed building for which listed building consent has been granted did not attract VAT. Unfortunately this rule was changed in the 2012 budget. Under certain circumstances there are savings still available for owners.

The understanding of this law is rather complicated but there will be two officers available for one-to-one discussions to guide you through this process.


The club’s insurance suppliers have been particularly successful in creating a range of policies specifically designed for this market including protection from under valuation, unauthorised work by previous owners and the introduction of a thatch monitoring system.

Members of the insurance team will be on hand at the show for one-to-one discussions.
