Previously scheduled to take place 22 – 31 August 2020 at London's ExCeL, Media10 has unfortunately had to postpone this year's Grand Designs Live London show until 2021. The event will now take place on 1 - 9 May 2021 at the same venue.

This comes following the UK Government’s recent announcement and updated guidelines, factoring in the safety and wellbeing of staff, exhibitors, sponsors, visitors, partners and contractors.

If you had a ticket for this year's London event, whether booked for May or August, you will automatically be transferred over to the new dates, so you do not need to do a thing. 

Your tickets will be valid on any day that you wish to attend - simply come along with your existing 
ticket to gain access. Alternatively, you can attend any other Media 10 event in 2021.

Simply bring your existing ticket to the box office on the day you would like to attend and exchange for a valid show ticket free of charge.
