Let’s Be the Change Talks

We have an exciting new format for talks this year and the beautiful Music Room in the manor house will provide the setting for our innovative ‘Let’s Be the Change’ talks. Saturday and Sunday at 12pm.

Hear our expert panel discussions. A Forum for sharing, debate, and discussion of practical ideas.  Get the insight, information and inspiration you need.


‘Gardening for the Planet’       

How are gardeners and growers meeting the challenges of Climate Change?  Are they altering ‘age-old’ practises to fit the milder winters; employing new methods or possibly even seeing benefits in the garden ? How can we avoid plastics is the garden? What can be done to increase biodiversity and counter the reduction in the insect population and prevent the potentially catastrophic consequences, if the trend continues?

Join experienced journalist, gardener and Chelsea flower show judge Tamsin Westhorpe, BBC 2’s Allotment Guru Terry Walton, award winning Garden designer Hannah Genders, and Hellens head gardener David Maddison to explore how we can all do our bit to ‘Garden for the Planet’.
