Tickets: £18
Eventbrite booking fee: £1.66


A true son of the East Anglian soil, and President of the Norfolk group of the Soil Association, Bob Flowerdew is one of the few gardening authors to ever make the front page of The New York Times.

He has written three dozen books in a dozen languages, set questions for BBC television’s Mastermind and spent two and a half decades, so far,  as a panelist on BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time.

In his witty and informative No Work Gardening, he pokes fun at commonly accepted gardening advice and pours vitriol over the heads of foolish gardening experts!

His most recent book, Really Help Butterflies, is a heartfelt call to action to help our lepidoptera by growing plants that will sustain our native butterfly caterpillars.

The talk will be followed by a book-signing - please bring cash.

Please bring your own seating and an umbrella for rain or sun - picnics welcome too!

Running Time 70mins 
Doors open at 2.00pm
