Old Herbaceous
Saturday 27th July – performance starts at 7.30pm

Old Herbaceous£25 per ticket.
You're very welcome to bring a picnic and drinks to enjoy, the nursery will remain open instead of closing at 5.30pm.

Described as “Downton Abbey with gardening tips”, Old Herbaceous is the humorous love story of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants and is a charming one man play which has entranced sell-out audiences all around the country over the last two years.

An acute and sometimes hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with witticisms and epithets. The evening blossoms into tender humour, much in the traditionally understated English style of the early 20th century.

As Old Herbaceous, renowned actor Giles Shenton truly lives the part of the legendary Head Gardener, Herbert Pinnegar, inviting you to feel included in a private chat from a bygone, comforting age. Keeping you engrossed, amused and emotionally engaged from start to finish, Old Herbaceous will leave you with a feeling that, perhaps, all’s right with the world.

"This lovingly created production is a joy to watch. Sad at times, it unexpectedly twists into a quiet love story of sorts. A delightful tale, beautifully told, Old Herbaceous is a treat to watch and not just for garden lovers." The Reviews Hub

"Wonderful production....Downton Abbey with gardening tips" Surrey Advertiser

"Not to be missed" BBC Radio Kent

“Reminiscent of going down to the allotment with your grandad…..a wonderful, wonderful evening” BBC Radio Lincolnshire

“Absolutely idyllic” BBC Radio York

“What exactly was the factor that kept the audience riveted to Giles Shenton’s performance? He draws us into his world from his first entrance...and we are held entranced from start to finish....it is a nostalgic, quietly satisfying evening spent with someone who creates an instant rapport with the audience, drawing us into his world and making the characters in it so real you feel you have known them forever." Edinburgh Fringe Review
