Matt Baker


The Garden Rooms at Tennants is delighted to announce that TV star Matt Baker will be appearing in Leyburn, North Yorkshire on Wednesday 26th June. In An Evening with Matt Baker, the BAFTA and RTS award winning present will be drawing on his wealth of experience both on and off the screen to talk all things nature, countryside and sustainability.

Matt Baker MBE is a much-loved face on British TV, who has become hugely popular with the public, whilst raising awareness about how the power and beauty of the countryside can be an inspiration and joy for us all. He is best known for presenting shows such as the BBC’s The One Show, Blue Peter and Countryfile, and more recently Channel 4’s Our Farm in The Dales, Travels with Mum & Dad and Travels in the Country USA. His book, A Year on Our Farm: How the Countryside Made Me is a Sunday Times Best Seller, and his charitable work earned him and MBE in 2022, having raised over £45 million for Children in Need during his now legendary 12 consecutive years of Rickshaw Challenge rides.

After the talk, there will be a Q&A session followed by a book signing. The Garden Rooms’ Bistro and Café will be open for dinner prior to the event.

Tickets, which start at £25.00, can be purchased from
