We are inviting bands (adults or children) to perform 30 minute outdoor slots at the Gardens between 4.30pm and 8.30pm on selected nights during Christmas at Kew from 27 November 2013 until 4 January 2014.

There is no performance fee but Kew will pay £100 per act for travel expenses and provide complimentary drinks.

Kew's wreath for remembrance 2013

Fri, 2013-11-08 17:16

This week Collections Horticulturist, Carlos Magdalena, finalised the plants which will feature in the wreath this year. The collected sprigs and flowers are from specimens representing the UK Overseas Territories including: the Falkland Islands, Montserrat and St Helena, and are all grown on-site at Kew.

As well as the wreath which is laid at the Cenotaph, a second identical wreath is crafted and laid in Kew Gardens to commemorate the many members of the Kew Guild and staff who fell in the First and Second World Wars.
