Highlights from the MIX 56 live broadcast from the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park 2023

The RHS Flower Show is one of the most-loved and prestigious events in the local calendar each year, attracting over 80,000 visitors looking for gardening inspiration and advice.

For the second year running, we were proud to be the only independent radio station invited to broadcast live from the event. 

Over the two days, Ian and Paul were joined by Medical Herbalist, Barbara Wilkinson, of the Herb Society.

What a wonderful time we had!  You can listen to some of the highlights right here:
