Friday Oct 5th
The speaker this year will be Anna Pavord, a gardening writer whose book ‘Landskipping’ about the British landscape ( ‘a splendid patchwork of history, nature writing, polemic and memoir’ – Sunday Telegraph) has a chapter on Cobbett. She is an experienced speaker who has been Gardening Correspondent for the Independent and wrote for the Observer for 20 years. She presented a 10 part TV series on Channel 4 and was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1991. She was the guest on Desert Island Discs late last year (Nov 2017).
