Recognising that the definition of home is not only centred on visual appeal, the 2018 East Coast Radio House & Garden Show aims to broaden on the physical definitions of home by adding exciting male-focused features to their line-up of interior trends and workshops.
“A home is so much more than four walls and a roof over our heads; it’s about what we like to do after work and on weekends. A home is what makes us feel comfortable and relaxed – something that differs in all of us,” says Show Director Cairey Baxter-Bruce.
With a particular focus on the interests of men, the show will feature male-centric activities including outdoor ideas for the home, home-automation, DIY, the KZN Travel and Adventure Show, Geekville & the Durban Gaming Expo, craft beer stations and a Gin Garden Bar.
“We don’t want to be a seen as a niche event for those renovating or redecorating; we want to appeal to everyone. This year, we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure that every family member can experience something enjoyable,” says Baxter-Bruce.
Food is often one of the things that set the scene for a home; and as such, in partnership with Durban Tourism, the brand-new Discover Durban Cuisine Kitchen will highlight cultural, traditional, and contemporary foods with local chefs as they present their top tips, inspired flavour combinations and favourite dishes in an interactive demonstration kitchen. The popular Foodie Fair is back with double the mouth-watering flavour; offering delicious street food, desserts, artisanal and speciality delicacies.
Those hankering for a tipple with a twist, can look forward to discovering great new flavours at the wide selection of Craft Beer stations, and the Gin Garden Bar in the Green Fingers area, offering botanical splashes of refreshment.
The Builders DIY Pavilion will feature more than 40 suppliers offering a range of amazing show deals and more. While you’re there, improve your painting and DIY techniques in their interactive workshops.
