The Old House Show

We’re 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!

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 and for the chance to win one of our prizes. The Old House Show is free for all, but registration in advance is essential. When you register, you are also automatically entered into our prize draw and have the chance of winning one of the following prizes.
