On 23 April 2024, BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time will record a programme at Trinity College on Broad Street.

The celebrated panel of gardening experts will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts.

Gardeners’ Question Time is a Radio 4 institution, attracting 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 been guests of a diverse range of gardening clubs and other organisations, including recording at the top of Mount Snowdon, broadcasting from Buckingham Palace and answering questions from inside the House of Lords.

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!
