On Monday 28th July, BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time records a programme with Windermere Lake Cruises. 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 Pippa Greenwood, Bunny Guinness and Bob Flowerdew on the panel.

Gardeners’ Question Time is a Radio 4 institution, attraction 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 previously 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!

The programme will be hosted on board the historic ‘steamer’ MV Teal.

Tickets cost £4.50 and can be purchased from Windermere Lake Cruises ticket offices (Lakeside, Ambleside or Bowness) or from
