Preview – The Real Marigold on Tour


Back together once again, Miriam Margolyes, Wayne Sleep, Rosemary Shrager and Bobby George set off for another retirement adventure, this time, in China.

Staying in Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan Province, the group struggle with the language barrier and Miriam in particular, struggles with the new diet.

The retirees opt to stay in a country retreat. They take a ride on a high-speed bullet train that takes them high into the mountains surrounding the city. Home to the giant panda, a feeding session at a local sanctuary leads to an emotional moment for Miriam, while Rosemary can’t quite understand what all the fuss is about.
