Listed Property Show returns to Olympia - 15th & 16th Feb 2014 Print E-mail

The Listed Property Show has brought together the industry’s best. Find experts on listed property regulations, have a chat with conservation officers and meet with architects and planners.

Alongside are architects and planners, window and door manufacturers, craftsmen, and “caring” builders as well as practical demonstrations and informative talks.

Entry to the show is free to readers when applied for in advance; get your free invitation now from www.lpoc.co.uk or email info@lpoc.co.uk. Alternatively ring 01795 844939.

If you own, or are thinking of buying a listed building, your first port of call should be the Listed Property Show!
