You'd need a mansion to house events at the London Home Show this weekend. There will be inspiring (and bank manager frightening), designs for the home and garden, with professionals at hand for advice and quality exhibitors. And it's not all DIY; celebrity chef Anthony Worrall Thompson will be showcasing his culinary delights and there will be live jazz from Jazz FM with Courtney Pine playing on Monday. Olympia, Hammersmith Road, W14. Info: 0990-900 090, pounds 10, concessions pounds 6.
At the cutting edge of technology is The Squawl Show. For technophobes, this will be your chance to bone up on the stuff that mystifies you, but will impress others. There'll be digital arts, sound and vision, installations, sculpture and works of art in real and virtual space by students of Middlesex University's Centre for Electronic Art. Units 1.12-1.17, First Floor Southside, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse St, South Bank, SE1. Information: 0181-362 5134.
Or go back to more traditional communication with words on a page at London Voices Poetry Workshop. This is an informal and friendly poetry group where aspiring poets can read their own verse and listen to others. Young people especially welcome. London Spa, Exmouth Market, EC1; 0181- 445 0090.
