Expert panel to record show on April 16
If you’re a gardener in the North East, now’s your chance to put that troubling horticultural problem to the experts, as the BBC’s revered Gardeners’ Question Time comes to the Toon on April 16.
The celebrated panel of gardeners will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardeners in the Live Theatre – and they never see the queries before going on the air.
Gardeners’ Question Time is a BBC Radio 4 institution, with an audience of more than two million listeners a week.
Each show is recorded in a different location and the show has answered more than 40,000 questions since it began in 1947.
The panel members have been guests of a wide range of gardening clubs and locations; including the top of Snowdon, Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street and even a naturists’ camp!
Depth of gardening knowledge
The experts’ encyclopaedic, seemingly effortless, answers are completely spontaneous and reveal their huge experience and depth of gardening knowledge.
Doors open at 5.30pm, with recording starting at 6.15pm and a running time of approximately two hours.
For tickets, which cost £4.50, visit the Live Theatre box office, Broad Chare, Quayside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne NE1 3DQ, open Monday-Friday from noon-5.30pm, and until 8pm when there is an evening performance. Saturday and Sunday opening hours vary depending on the performance schedule.
