Ty Pennington’s Great British Adventure

Premieres exclusively on Home from September 14th, 10pm 

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s Ty Pennington returns to the UK for what promises to be his biggest British adventure yet. 

Responding to a plea for help from the beleaguered town of Portishead, Ty embarks on a mission to rebuild their much loved open air swimming pool.  Devastated by the council’s decision to close the pool last year, locals have been lobbying rigorously to get their pool back and, after months of campaigning, their wish has finally been granted.  There’s only one problem – they need to reopen the dilapidated pool in May and there’s months of work to be done!

Enter Ty who takes up the challenge and promises to help the locals in a race against time to get the massive project completed in only seven days and within budget.  It’s a big job – the pool needs to be cleared of debris, the changing rooms transformed, a children’s wet play area installed, solar heating fitted, the place redecorated and, just to add some extra pressure, the pool takes seven days to fill and heat.  Will Ty rally the community in time so that future generations can have their own cherished memories of swimming in the sun? 

Ty’s next mission takes him to the Scottish border town of Langholm, a once thriving textile town with a rich cultural heritage that has fallen on hard times.  Symbolic of the town’s demise is the loss of its music and arts festival, an annual event that not only gave the local town bands the chance to perform but helped put Langholm on the much needed tourist map.

Taking on his most ambitious British adventure yet, Ty pulls out all the stops to resurrect Langholm’s music festival.  Using all of his trademark enthusiasm and energy, Ty galvanises the community into undertaking this mammoth project. Together they need to transform the historic Kiln Green and neglected castle grounds into a vibrant open air performance space. It’s no small task – they need to build a footbridge across the River Esk to link the two sites, create an open air stage, renovate the closed tourist centre and make a music themed play area for the local children. 

Promising to deliver breathtaking transformations, Ty’s Great British Adventure sees Ty doing what he does best - surprising deserving local people who have volunteered to help but who also deserve recognition and reward.  With the clock ticking, will Ty complete his missions of mercy?
