The Darling Buds of May

The Darling Buds of May


The Darling Buds of May

Pop Larkin, who makes a fortune from scrap-iron deals but has never paid income tax, lives in rural idyllic bliss with generous-hearted Ma and their six children. When a young, earnest tax official Mr Charlton turns up one hot May afternoon in 1957 to investigate, he is bewitched immediately by eldest daughter Mariette, and it isn't long before he succumbs to the boisterous Larkin family charm and largesse.

With a blend of humour, tenderness, and a touch of nostalgia, The Darling Buds of May will leave you with a smile on your face and a renewed appreciation for the simple joys that make life truly special.

A wonderfully warm-hearted adaptation by H.E. Bates of his novel that led to the 1991 television series.
