Britain’s longest-running gardening show on the wireless, BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, is set to take to the road.

GQT panellists will tour the UK this autumn

So far, 28 dates have been set for GQT’s inaugural Live Tour, which kicks off in Norfolk on 20 October.

GQT chairman Eric Robson will travel the UK with experts, including Chris Beardshaw, Matthew Biggs, Bob Flowerdew, Pippa Greenwood, Bunny Guinness, Christine Walkden, Matthew Wilson and Anne Swithinbank.

A spokeswoman said: “This will be completely different from a Radio 4 recording.

“The live show will include gardening demonstrations, anecdotes from the panellists and audience interaction. There will be a peek at the panellists’ gardens and a confession of their own gardening gripes.”

Organisers promise “gardening expertise interspersed with quirky humour” from the voices heard by two million BBC Radio 4 listeners.

Audiences will be able to see videos of life behind-the-scenes at GQT’s HQ.

Tickets for GQT, The Live Tour are on sale now, with prices starting at £21.50. The tour runs from 20 October to 4 December. Go to or call (0844) 875 8758.
