There is no better way to kick off the holiday season with a visit to The Ideal Home Show at Christmas. The event this year is taking place from now until the 23rd November at the iconic Earls Court in London.
Ideal Home Show at Christmas will be hosted at Earls Court as its due for development from 2015, so next year we will see the event return to its original venue of Olympia.
The show features a host of festive favourite celebrities including Gino D'campo, Lisa Faulkner, Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen, Suzi Perry and Olly Smith. They are at the show to offer us their festive tips and hints to make our Christmas day go perfectly.
You will be able to go to the Christmas theatre to see the experts at work, there is hourly sessions showing you how to make the perfect table setting, festive wreaths, Christmas cards and many more. This is sure to give you some different ideas to impress your friends and family at this festive time of the year.
There is of course the iconic ice skating rink, this is the centre piece of the show, so for £5 an adult and only £3.50 for a child, you can get on the ice and show off your moves. For the little ones there are penguins to help them on their way. Around the ice rink you will find a band stand with live music.
