Listen to our latest podcasts, recorded at the Gardens Illustrated Festival in 2015.

 

Readers are aware, hopefully, that back in January we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Gardens Illustrated Festival for 2016 due to concerns over the suitability of the site and it’s financial viability. 

We are working towards 2017’s event and looking for an alternative venue – hopefully still in the Cotswolds.

Festival podcasts
In the meantime you can find podcasts of a selection of talks from the 2015 festival held in Malmesbury.
