Hit show coming to town
A BBC radio institution which has inspired generations of garden enthusiasts will be recorded in an East Kilbride college in just a few weeks’ time.
South Lanarkshire College is getting off to a great start in the new year with the news that Gardeners’ Question Time on Radio 4, which attracts over two million listeners a week, will pack up its trowels and come to town.
Since its inception in 1947 this long-standing radio programme has answered well over 40,000 questions and the people of East Kilbride could be asking the next set when the show arrives at South Lanarkshire College on Tuesday, January 22.
The celebrated panel of gardening experts will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts, with Eric Robson in the chair.
Panel members never see the questions before the recording.
Their encyclopaedic 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!
Tickets for the event will be on sale to the general public from Tuesday, January 8 and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tickets cost £4.50 and can be purchased by visiting South Lanarkshire College or logging on to slc.ac.uk/ news/gqt
The doors for Gardeners’ Question Time will open at 5.30pm and recording will begin at 6.15pm.
