How can I attend a recording of GQT?

It's likely that GQT will be in your area at some point during the year. The programmes are hosted by various groups, mainly gardening clubs and horticultural societies,and it's the group which invites the programme that is responsible for the distribution of the tickets. Although groups tend to give the tickets to their own members first there's usually enough space to include non-members

Do we have to be a gardening club?

Not at all. GQT visits all sorts of groups. We have recorded programmes in a prison, on a London Underground Station, in zoos, schools and even at a naturist club. Not all gardeners belong to a gardening club and we'll go wherever there are keen gardeners.
