The orchid festival is back, celebrating the magnificent biodiversity of Indonesia, the land of 17,000 islands.

Orchids at Kew


Saturday 8 February – Sunday 8 March 2020


Princess of Wales Conservatory


Included with entry to the Gardens. Ticketed timeslots coming soon.

Immerse yourself in the tropics this winter by exploring the wonders of Indonesia through Kew's iconic 25th annual orchid festival. 

Rainforests and volcanoes will be brought to life inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory through an exotic array of vibrant orchid displays.

Over 5,000 species of orchids can be found in Indonesia, alongside the staggering wildlife found nowhere else on earth. 

This year's festival is a celebration of the cultural and natural diversity that is scattered across the country's archipelago of 17,504 islands, and the scientific discovery being made by Kew's intrepid scientists. 

A programme of evening events, half-term and weekend activities featuring Indonesian music, dance and cuisine and expert talks will be revealed soon.

Our orchid festival is very popular, so we will shortly be releasing ticketed timeslots.

Your timeslot will be a free addition to your garden entry ticket. Check back for more details.
