Homebase is inviting customers to head into the store on Saturday where they'll have the opportunity to be inspired by Dulux experts and take part in product demonstrations between 9am-10am and 3pm-4:30pm.

The team will also be joined by the Dulux dog, from 10am-4pm, and customers will be able to snap a selfie with him.
