What you’ll do

Join Claudia Hammond and guests to discuss the relationship between plants and our mental health.

Claudia will present the programme and interview the speakers. Then the audience will have the chance to ask questions. You can participate or just listen in.

The event will be recorded live with an audience and edited into a programme to be broadcast on the BBC World Service.

The event is inspired by the Wellcome Collection exhibition ‘Rooted Beings’.

In partnership with the BBC World Service

We’ll be in the Reading Room on level 2. You can walk up the spiral staircase to the Reading Room door, or take the lift up and then head left from the Library Desk.
