Garden designer, writer and presenter of BBC Gardeners’ World, Joe Swift, will be appearing at Brimsmore Gardens in Yeovil on Saturday 22 October at 7pm. Part of the annual Yeovil Literary Festival, which runs from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 October, Joe will share his vast knowledge and experience with a room full of garden-enthusiasts, having recently completed an award-winning pocket park with Dame Zandra Rhodes in Bermondsey. Fresh from his work on a Horatios Garden in aid of The Spinal Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Joe will be touching upon many of the highlights of his eventful career.
Tickets cost £12 per person, or £10 for YCCA members, Footlights, Waterstone’s card holders, Library card holders and The Gardens Group Gold Club members, and are available from the Octagon Theatre.
Guests are also welcome to arrive from 6pm to enjoy some light refreshments at the award-winning Apple Tree Restaurant, which are included in the ticket price, before the talk gets underway at 7pm.
