Recorded in a different location each week, this long-standing radio programme has answered well over 40,000 questions since its inception in 1947 and we’re excited that it’s coming to South Lanarkshire College on Tuesday 22nd January.

The celebrated panel of gardening experts will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts, with Eric Robson in the chair. The panel members have been guests of a diverse range of gardening clubs and locations; including the top of Snowdon, Buckingham Palace, and 10 Downing Street.

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!

Please note some important event timings:

• 5:30pm – Doors open to audience.
• 6:05pm – Final admission.
• 6:10pm – Producer announcements.
