25 May 2013 to 03 November 2013
Who would have imagined that Kew’s beautiful glasshouse, the Palm House, was not merely a tropical escape in the heart of London, but home to over 60 weird and exotic edible plants? This Summer and Autumn, Kew celebrates the amazing bounty of the plant world, inviting visitors to experience first-hand a selection of the 30,000 species we can feast on.
In honour of Kew Gardens’ summer festival IncrEdibles (which celebrates the delicious diversity of edible plants), Bompas & Parr, culinary curators at the intersection of art, architecture and food, will create a dramatic display that will ask people to think again about the food that they eat every day.
Rory McEwen The Colours of Reality will present the vibrant and varied career of the renowned Scottish artist and musician, Rory McEwen (1932 – 1982).
