Tickets are selling fast for a prestigious garden show expected to raise thousands for charity.

Visitors hoping to attend the Little Bentley Hall Waterways and Garden Show, at the home of Christopher and Virginia Palmer-Tomkinson, are being encouraged to book tickets for the popular event.

Host and former High Sherriff of Essex Mr Palmer-Tomkinson said: “I am looking forward to welcoming visitors to our garden which was just an open field when we came to Little Bentley 40 years ago.

“Now with a new lake and reclaimed ancient waterways, it has become one of the finest private gardens in East Anglia.”

The show will open on the evening of May 31 with the band of the Parachute Regiment.

There will also be an art show, silent auction and brass bands all weekend.
