BBC Gardeners’ World Live will be back at The NEC from 17 to 20 June 2021 and tickets are now on sale. Organisers have incorporated a number of measures, including a larger event footprint to allow for social distancing, timed visitor entry and changes to the theatre layouts.
BBC Gardeners’ World presenters confirmed to appear include Monty Don, Adam Frost, Carol Klein, Joe Swift and Frances Tophill. BBC Gardeners’ World magazine columnist, Alan Titchmarsh, has also been confirmed to appear on Saturday, plus Toby Buckland on Sunday.
The main themes for the 2021 show are flower power, sustainability and indoor gardening. The brand new My Gardeners’ World Stage in the Floral Marquee will give exhibiting nurseries, special guests and the Gardeners’ World presenters a platform to share ideas about how everyone can do their bit for sustainability and the environment in their gardens, being mindful of the impact that activities have on wildlife and plants.
Bob Sweet, BBC Gardeners’ World Live’s director of horticulture, says: “There is no doubt that gardening has been a great comfort to many, during the situation that we find ourselves in currently. We are growing as a nation of gardeners more than ever and, as such, we are delighted to be announcing plans for BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2021. Inspiring every level of gardener and garden lover, our themes are all the more pertinent to the world we live in today – Flower Power, Sustainability and Indoor Gardening. We are also thrilled to confirm that nearly all the designers, landscapers, exhibitors and sponsors from our postponed Show will be working alongside us to create a formidable event in 2021.”
