The Man, The Dream, The Journey - a Celebration of 14 remarkable years.

Kevin McCloud is a supreme storyteller and this is the first ever opportunity for Australian fans to see him live on stage; hear the stories and relive the tears and laughter as Kevin recalls grand dreams becoming a reality.

The international hit television show Grand Designs will be in the spotlight as Kevin shares stories, anecdotes and inspiring footage from the much-loved television series. The best and worst builds, the relationships under pressure, the episodes that never happened and Kevin’s unique take on those that did.

In this premiere two hour event Kevin will look back on the architectural and human stories that have most fascinated him over his long involvement with the show; examining the challenges and pitfalls of designing and building your dream home.

For 14 years he has commented from the sidelines as he watched self-builders follow their dreams. Now he will reveal what he was really thinking, and what happened after the film crew moved on.

An Evening with Kevin McCloud puts great design - and Grand Designs - under the microscope.

Audiences will have a chance to question Kevin McCloud, and be entertained as he talks about his passion for architecture, great design, his fascination with how we live, and his own attempts, through his company HAB, to improve the quality of affordable housing.

Kevin McCloud said:
"Australia is an extraordinary place where I feel very welcome. So I'm looking forward to returning in October for two very special and quite different events. The first is the exhibition event Grand Designs Live, staged in both Melbourne and Sydney which I'll be co-hosting with Peter Maddison. It really is Australia's finest lifestyle event dedicated to home renovation and design.

The second is my brand new Australian touring show "An Evening with Kevin McCloud" which is, as it suggests, an evening with me and my exploits, from Grand Designs to my Shed to Mumbai to what happens when you try to build a house with toast. Come one, come all - there'll be some very poor music and some construction mayhem. No hard hat necessary. Hope to see you there"
