A HORTICULTURAL CABARET!

Sunday 4 June
Gates 6:15pm | Performance 7.45pm
All tickets £21.50*
Legendary gardener, broadcaster and writer Alan Titchmarsh performs a cabaret programme of readings and music loosely based on matters horticultural. Touching, funny, beautiful, surprising, saucy, elegant, Alan is joined by the green-fingered Richard Sisson, one of the country’s finest cabaret pianists, acclaimed soprano Rebecca Bottone and Luton’s award winning girls’ choir Cantores.
The programme will include excerpts from the following (unless the slugs get them first or there is an attack of cucumber mosaic virus…):
To A Wild Rose by Edward MacDowell, Come into the garden, Maud by Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, Billy Mayerl’s Marigold, Voices of Spring by Johann Strauss, Laurie Lee’s Cider With Rosie, June from Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons and The Glory of the Garden by Rudyard Kipling.
An evening of easy charm in the company of experienced and engaging entertainers. Secateurs at the ready!
