An evening with Caroline Quentin 1st March followed by a book signing

Join us for an exciting evening with the fabulous Caroline Quentin! Get ready to be entertained as she shares stories from her new book!

Mixing heartwarming personal stories with gardening tips and delicious recipes, this beautiful volume from actress Caroline Quentin is a love letter to the restorative magic of horticulture.

Find solace in your outdoor space in this delightful horticultural journey with actress Caroline Quentin, as she draws on her life-long passion for gardening.

Through the pages of this gift book, Caroline shows how much joy she gets from spending time in her garden, whether it be grappling with the best way to grow plants and vegetables, or raising seeds in her potting shed. Though she now has a large following on her Instagram account, @CQGardens, her attitude to gardening is the same as it has always been – expertise helps but is not essential. Gardening should be fun and enjoyable, filled with the simple pleasures of planning, planting, harvesting and cooking. It is also a meditative and restorative pastime, and a great way to lift your spirits.

Written in a warm and engaging way that reflects her personality, Caroline tells stories of growing chillies from seed in her greenhouse, berating the thieving blackbirds in her fruit cage, and swimming in her pond singing to dragon flies and flag irises. Over the years, she has come to realise that gardening, just like life, is a series of happy accidents, unplanned successes, and baffling and frustrating failures.

Illustrated by Caroline herself, this gorgeous book mixes personal stories of her life and experiences in the garden, with practical tips, recipes for food and drink, and even the occasional favourite poem. As she likes to misquote Dorothy Parker: ‘Take to horticulture, it’s cheaper than a shrink’.

After the event, Caroline will be available for a book signing, It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet the talented actress in person and get your book personally signed.

The event will take place at The Neston Club – Parkgate Clubhouse, a cozy and welcoming venue that will provide the perfect atmosphere for an unforgettable evening. Don’t miss out on this unique chance to spend an evening with Caroline Quentin and make memories that will last a lifetime!
