The celebrated panel of gardening experts will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts, with Eric Robson in the chair and the team being made up of Anne Swithinbank, Matthew Biggs, and Pippa Greenwood.
Gardeners’ Question Time is a Radio 4 institution, attracting over 2 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 a telecommunications call centre and the London Transport Museum.
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!
Does the ticket include access to the National Space Centre’s galleries and Rocket Tower?
No, the ticket includes access to the café and planetarium, for the recording.
Can I email in a question in advance?
No, all questions will be collected on the evening.
Can you guarantee my question will be answered?
No, there will be a random selection on the night, however, there are always many more questions submitted than the panel have time to answer we’re afraid.
Will I be on the radio/tv?
If your question is selected, you may be asked to read it out as part of the recording. Gardener’s Question Time is a recorded radio show, it is not shown on television.
