The award-winning Grand Designs Live returns to Excel in London this spring and promises to provide information, ideas and expert advice on everything from technology to cuisine.

As the main highlight of the show, the Grand Village provides an inside look at eco show homes, pioneering builds and innovative sustainable building techniques that include everything from energy efficient lighting to water saving devices. It's a must-see for anyone visiting the show.

But if you're not quite up to self-building just yet, never fear - the Grand Interiors Theatre offers a wide range of talks by experts who are only too happy to teach you some tricks of the trade enabling you to take a fresh new look at your own home and even add value to the property.

If you still haven't found the answer to your question the Ask An Expert service will undoubtedly come up trumps. A team of top industry experts will be offering 30 minute consultations to help with any aspect of build, design and renovation and, best of all, it's totally free.

Elsewhere, the Light My Home feature reveals exciting and innovative lighting solutions, Iconic Interiors showcases three rooms designed with iconic pieces of furniture to inspire your creativity and the As Seen on TV section gives visitors the chance to see and test the products made famous on the TV show.

The Grand Gardens area will provide inspiration for all you green-fingered types (as well as an array of experts and celebrities) while the Live Kitchen Experience boasts two interactive features - see how the professionals do things as the top chefs cook up a storm or try out the very latest Miele appliances at Kitchen Inspiration.

So don't imagine that Grand Designs Live is for those with big ideas... even those with a modest budget will find inspiration at the show.

Grand Designs Live runs from April 30 to May 8.
