Build It Live 2023


The UK’s most informative self-build and renovation show, Build It Live, returns to Bicester on 10th and 11th June – and you won’t want to miss out.

If you’re planning a self-build, renovating a property or looking to add more space to your current home, then you can't afford to miss Build It Live Bicester on 10th and 11th June. As the UK's most practical self-build and renovation show, Build It Live has been designed to help people through each stage of the process – from finding land to hiring an architect, and sourcing materials for your build.

The exhibition, which will take place at Bicester Heritage, will provide two full days of inspiration, advice and practical tips to ensure you get the home you want – finished on time, and on budget. Within the exhibition hall, you’ll be able to meet hundreds of the UK’s leading suppliers and manufacturers, offering everything from build systems to sliding doors, so you can compare products before making those important buying decisions.

But that’s not all! The show has been designed as a one-stop shop for all your information needs. Over the two days, you’ll be able to attend free seminars and workshops, hosted by industry experts and covering topics such as how to fund your self-build project, heating options for your home and the different routes to managing your project.

Architects, planners and finance experts will also be on hand, offering free, independent advice in one-to-one sessions. You’ll be able to sit down and have a face-to-face chat, talk through your plans or concerns, and gain the insight you need to move your scheme forward.

Here are just some of the other great features you’ll be able to experience at the show:


Stop by the Land Zone to browse real plots for sale across the UK, gain advice about the various routes to finding land, and speak to representatives from the latest serviced plot projects.


See a cut-away show home at ‘first fix’– a fascinating insight into how things are installed in a new home, from insulation and underfloor heating, to the roof trusses and floor joists.


Gain inspiration and confidence from Build It readers who have already completed their own project. Hear their story, pick up some top tips, and learn from their mistakes.


The show will offer a wide variety of specialists, demonstrating a huge range of glazing options, from bifold and sliding doors, to windows and rooflights.


The show will also have four dedicated clinics, for build costs, heating, basements and extensions – where you’ll be able to chat to experts and troubleshoot your scheme.

Don’t miss out! The standard ticket price is £12 per person, but as an Ox Mag reader you can claim a pair of complimentary tickets to the show.
