THE OLD HOUSE SHOW. The art and craft of building care

7 – 8 September 2018
Greenwich, London

SPAB  is delighted to announce the launch of the first ever Old House Show, in partnership with Period Living, a free event taking place at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich over two days this September. The Old House Show takes place from Friday 7 September to Saturday 8 September 2018, and will epitomise everything the SPAB stands for. Focusing on the SPAB approach, and our unique emphasis on independent advice, crafts and education, there will be a full programme of talks, building crafts demonstrations and exhibitors with a conservation focus. The Old House Show is for members and non-members alike – and it’s absolutely free!

Talks Programme

We have an exciting programme of expert talks planned for Old House Show. The talks will take place in the magnificent historic chapel at the Old Royal Naval College, just above the main Old House Show space. The talks are free to enter and cover a range of conservation topics, from how to deal with damp, manage a building project or to protect against fire in an old building, right through to conservation principles and a careers’ forum. Register now to be the first to hear about the talks programme!

Building Crafts Demonstrations

In the famous colonnade of the Old Royal Naval College you can see live building crafts demonstrations in action. Watch bricklayers, stonemasons, plasterers, blacksmiths and stained glass conservators show you the tricks of their trade and have a go yourself!
