EVENT – BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time recording
DATE Wednesday 31st May 2017
VENUE Uplyme Village Hall
The celebrated panel of gardening experts, including Bob Flowerdew, Anne Swithinbank and Bunny Guinness, will be tackling questions put to them by the audience of local gardening enthusiasts.
Gardeners’ Question Time is a Radio 4 institution, attracting over two million listeners a week. Recorded in a different location each week, this long-standing radio programme has answered well over 30,000 questions since its inception in 1947.
The panel members have been guests of a diverse range of gardening clubs and other organisations; including recording at the top of Snowdon, broadcasting from Buckingham Palace and answering questions from inside Number 10 Downing Street.
The panel NEVER see the questions before the recording. Their encyclopaedic, seemingly effortless answers are completely spontaneous and reveal their huge experience and depth of gardening knowledge. Being on the GQT panel is not for the faint hearted!
