In its 23rd year, this year’s show promises to be bigger than ever with more than 200 exhibitors.

‘‘We’ve been inundated by new exhibitors this year which will provide our visitors something fresh and new which is really exciting. It’s shaping as the biggest home show yet,’’ organiser Scott McKelligott, of PJ Promotions, said.

Let Weird Al Yankovic inspire your inner home handyperson. The stand out of this year’s event is the living room, an 120-square metre indoor and outdoor display worth more than $23,000 featuring products from Spa World, Barbeques Galore, Custom Audio Visual Solutions and more.

Show attendees have the chance to win the entire living room display which includes a double-sided fireplace and a four person spa.

‘‘This is a really different and fun addition to the home show and it’s a great way for visitors to see how the exhibitors and professionals in the home show work,’’ Mr McKelligott said.

The 2014 Herald Newcastle Home Show runs from Friday and ends on Sunday at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre and Showgrounds, Broadmeadow, 10am to 4pm daily. Tickets are $10 each or $8 concession, free for children under 16. Visit newcastlehomeshow南京夜网.au.
