Chesterfield’s Winding Wheel is to host the first tour of Gardeners Question Time Live this autumn.
Tickets have gone on sale for the show which will be staged in the town’s showpiece venue on Sunday, November 13, as part of a nationwide tour.
For the first time resident chair Eric Robson will tour with his panel of expert gardeners comprising of Chris Beardshaw, Matt Biggs, Bob Flowerdew, Pippa Greenwood, Bunny Guinness, Anne Swithinbank, Christine Walkden and Matthew Wilson. Each night Eric will be joined by three members of the panel as they play to their largest ever live audience visiting theatres all around the UK, taking their unrivalled gardening expertise directly to their loyal followers.
The live tour promises to deliver an evening to remember. The panel will offer their inimitable gardening expertise interspersed with the usual dose of quirky humour as well as live demonstrations about best gardening practice and advice on how to overcome both common and more unusual garden problems.
Spectators will also be able to enjoy videos of life behind the scenes at Gardener’s Question Time headquarters and will be treated to a sneak peek of the panellists’ very own gardens.
The live setting for the long running team will also allow the well established panel the chance to share their most memorable experiences as some of the UK’s most esteemed gardening experts and of course, recount their very recent anecdotes of life ‘on tour.’ And, for those who have been ensnared by this cultural institution, the live version of the show hosted in a large venue for the first time is a chance for the widest possible audience to finally put a face to the very familiar voices heard every Sunday lunchtime.
