Beccles Public Hall has teamed up with some of Norfolk and Suffolk’s leading gardening experts for Gardeners’ Forum 2016, taking place at the hall on Sunday, October 2.

The forum comprises BBC Radio Norfolk’s Garden Party panellist Ian Roofe, Bob Coutts, a well-loved local professional gardener who has generously supported the hall with his very popular practical talks and demonstrations, and Richard Hobbs, botanist, plants-man and globe trotting gardener.

Local organic gardener, Waveney district and Beccles town councillor Graham Elliott will be hosting the panellists for the event.

Doors will open at 2pm for a 2.30pm start, and after the forum there will be a bring-and-buy plant sale, as well as a raffle and refreshments.

If possible, questions should be submitted in advance by writing to Sue Bergin c/o Beccles Public Hall or by email to sue@becclespublichall.com.

Tickets cost £8, available at www.becclespublichall.com, direct from the box office, open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm or by calling 01502 770060.
