Art in nature

This new interactive arts experience will take you on a journey through Wakehurst, exploring our evolving and complex relationship with nature - from the elements and soil, to flora and fauna.

This special evening will stimulate your curiosity, inviting you to learn more about the importance of plants and your own place in the natural world.

Unfolding into the wider landscape you will encounter soundscapes, sculptures and art installations, inspired by Wakehurst’s plants and the work of Kew’s scientists in the Millennium Seed Bank. 

Deepen your connection to the landscape, enliven your senses, and become more mindful of the intricate relationships within nature.

Suitable for ages 7+. 

Book your tickets to this truly unique summer evening experience.


Please note, this event takes place across the whole of the Wakehurst site and involves walking between installations over a total distance of approximately 2 miles. There is an adjusted route for wheelchair users, although the distances should still be considered and some footpaths maybe steep.
