House & Home Stage

Hosted by House & Home editor Helen Barrett

The House and Home tent comes alive this year with a stage designed by FT columnist Luke Edward Hall. Sessions will focus on a wide range of topics, from gardening in an era of climate change, to masterclasses on flower arranging, interior design and caring for listed-buildings. We will also tackle tough questions about London’s housing crisis and ask whether the property ladder as we know it is over.
