BBC Radio 4 Gardeners Question Time

In a couple of weeks time the GQT team are visiting Louth to record two episodes of Gardener’s Question Time.

On each ticket there is a space to write a question to the panel. The production team will select 10 to 12 questions for each show, on the night; before the show starts and the selected individuals will put their question to the panel. We hope to have an audience of 300, so get your ticket early.

Although it is an inSpire500 event it is being held in the TOWN HALL because the acoustics are better for a radio programme.

Monday 16th November 2015

Doors open 5pm – finish around 8.30pm, at the Town Hall

Tickets are available from St James shop or the Town Hall at £4.00 each
