We're back at
BBC Gardeners’ World Live
15th - 18th June 2023

The BBC Gardeners’ World Live Theatre will once again be sponsored by British Garden Centres.

It is the place to be inspired by informative talks from gardening experts from the comfort of a pre-booked seat, all hosted by Nicki Chapman. Big names are expected to appear on the stage, including Monty Don, Adam Frost, Carol Klein, Frances Tophill, Chris Collins, Michael Perry and Alan Titchmarsh.

Amy Stubbs, Development and Project Manager at British Garden Centres, said: “ We are delighted to be attending the show again and sponsoring the BBC Gardener’s World Live theatre. It is the ultimate day out for anyone that loves their outdoor space. If you’re a keen gardener looking to pick up new tips and garden ideas, then please visit the British Garden Centres stand which will offer inspirational plants and tips that visitors can recreate at home, and we can’t wait to bring our plant displays to life!”
