This weekend (5,6 Oct) there is a plant fair at Great Dixter. Gerben Tjeerdsmar, and others from across the water, are in the list of stalls.

You're a lot closer than we are, Brian ;D
Sounds like it would be worth the drive....and all the plants you'd buy......and the B&B overnight stay....and the evening meal at a fancy restaurant....at least it would help the economy ;D
At least that was our excuse for our gallivanting around the countryside after the Czech Conference!
cheers

Worth a long drive in my opinion just because Gerben Tjeerdsman  will be there ;D 
One of the nicest people you could hope to meet and a passionate plantsman.
