Our After Hours event offers a range of activities, from bee tattoos to honey tasting, crafting and sketching live models. You’ll have the chance to meet our experts who will be sharing their fascinating stories about pollinators, pollination and their own amazing work. And you’ll meet some of the mini-beast pollinators found at Kew Gardens.
A feast of charcuterie, meze and cheese boards will be available to buy. Perfect washed down with a summer cocktail or glass of wine from our pop-up pay bar!
Food and drinks are not included in the ticket price.
Designed by UK based artist Wolfgang Buttress, The Hive is an immersive sound and visual experience. The lights you see and the sounds you hear inside The Hive are triggered by bee activity in a real beehive at Kew.
The multi award-winning Hive was inspired by scientific research into the health of honeybees. It is a visual symbol of the pollinators’ role in feeding the planet and the challenges facing bees today.
