The award winning Ideal Home Show is back, returning to London’s Earls Court for its 105th year.

Between March 15 and April 1 there will be plenty to do and see at the venue.

You can expect a brand new face as TV presenter Melinda Messenger joins the show’s celebrity Ambassador line-up which includes presenter and architect George Clarke, gadget expert Suzi Perry, food critic Gregg Wallace, garden expert Alan Titchmarsh and interiors icon Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

The show will include a dedicated kitchen and bathroom zone, Ideal Interiors with the Ideal Home Magazine room sets, Ideal Gardens sponsored by Hydropool, Ideal Technology powered by Virgin Media, Ideal Food and Housewares and Ideal Shopping and Ideal Woman.

This year’s key highlight will be a brand new super theatre, which will include host talks and demonstrations from all of the celebrity ambassadors and from Martin Lewis, founder and editor of Moneysavingexpert.com.

The centrepiece of this year’s show will be a three full scale show homes, which visitors can explore. The first is the annual Prince’s House, the second home will be a ‘Low Cost Living House’ and the third is yet to be unveiled.

The 2013 Technology Hub, powered by Virgin Media, will showcase new ideas and inventions. Virgin Media will also be showcasing their key tech products, Virgin Media TiVo and Super-Fast Broadband.

And the Food and Drinks Theatre will include top celebrity chefs giving away handy hints and tips, plus live demonstrations. Visitors will be able to sample the latest tipples in the Drinks Theatre, sponsored by Regina, with experts including TV’s Olly Smith.
