Monty’s French connection
Monty Don will be returning to the county this week to meet fans and talk about his travels. The acclaimed gardener and TV presenter will be at Hadlow College, near Tonbridge on Thursday, June 27. He will sign copies of his latest book A French Garden Journey – The Road to Le Tholonet, before giving a talk about his BBC2 Gardens of France series and his travels. It follows his recent visit to Kent to open the reconstructed Japanese tea house folly at Hever Castle. The book signing is at 6pm at Hadlow College’s Broadview Tearoom, before the talk starts at 7.30pm in a marquee on the lawn. The £25 tickets include a soft drink and canapés.
