Jay Blades - DIY with Jay

Jay Blades is the beloved star of hit TV shows The Repair Shop, Money for Nothing, Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop and Jay Blades’ Home Fix.  Originally from Hackney, Jay is dyslexic and after leaving school at fifteen with no qualifications, he went on to study for a degree before finding his true vocation in restoration.  An inspirational motivator and a co-founder of an award-winning social enterprise, working with disengaged and disadvantaged young people, he joins us to talk about his life and books.

Jay’s acclaimed autobiography was a Sunday Times bestseller.  In his just-published new book, DIY with JAY, he shows us how to repair and refresh our homes.  With tales of his own do-it-yourself escapades and plenty of inspiration from his favourite home fixes, Jay offers tips for everyone from repainting a room to putting up a shelf.

Interviewing Jay is festival patron, broadcaster and presenter, Judi Spiers. Judi is best known for presenting Pebble Mill in the late 80s and early 90s.  She also had her own morning show on BBC Radio Devon for many years.
