Bicester was once again front and centre of the self-build and custom build world as Build It Live 2019 came into town!

Over the course of the weekend, hundreds of people descended on Bicester Heritage to talk to suppliers, look at the latest products and listen to a bursting programme of seminars and workshops.

We were there too, and it was great to hear all of your self-build and custom build dreams and ideas. Helping people find their dream home is something we’re incredibly passionate about and we genuinely love telling you all about what we have to offer on site.

Over the two days our team donned their conductors’ uniforms and led nine bus tours, for nearly 500 people, around the Graven Hill site! Passengers got the chance to see all of our housing products, including self-build plots, custom build homes and the Grand Designs street. Luckily, the rain stopped as the first bus left and we were able to show off the site in all its glory!

The packed programme of seminars and workshops had something for everyone. For those of you who visited, you may have seen our MD, Karen Curtin, in conversation with Grand Designs: The Street Pioneers, Terry and Olwen. Or one of our self-builders, Susan, talking about her journey to her dream home.

We also released a selection of new self-build plots and custom build homes. Some have already been snapped up but if you want to hear what we still have available, do get in touch.

It was a brilliant weekend and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. If Build It Live sparked your interest and you’d like to know more about what we have on offer, contact us here or visit our onsite Marketing Suite.
