Featuring more than 250 exhibitors, the show will run at the National Self-Build and Renovation Centre at Lydiard Fields from Friday to Sunday, 16 to 18 October.

As usual, tickets are free in advance.

A spokesperson for the organisation said: "While we are still all working and living in the most challenging times we have put a huge effort into creating a covid-secure environment, with all the expected measures being implemented, such as social-distancing, hand-sanitising stations and track & trace - ensuring visitors can enjoy a relaxing visit within our 67,000sqft showroom and visitor centre.  

"The October show will look and feel a little different, with live presentations and tours replaced by recorded videos and audio guides, but there is plenty for people to experience and enjoy.  

"The NSBRC offers over 250 exhibitors, many of which will be on hand to engage with during the show, and visitors can book free one-to-one appointments with self-build experts.  

"Our expert helpdesk will be fully staffed with our own team, ready to answer any questions and offer support and guidance.

"We will also be sharing key homebuilding information in our Self Build Cinema, and we have three exclusive Case Study Interviews being shown each day."

The centre notes on its website: "In order to maintain social distancing, we are having to reduce the capacity of the event and require all attendees to book in advance on this occasion. We are also limiting parties to a maximum of two adult members per household. 

"If you are bringing children please ensure they remain with you at all times.

"Additional measures have been implemented for the safety of all. Please take time to familiarise yourself with these, and our team would be happy to answer any concerns you may have."
