Kew the MusicElvis Costello, Simple Minds and Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra are on the Kew the Music line-up when it returns for summer 2014 this July. Marc Almond and Melanie C appear as a special guest stars with Jools Holland on Friday 18th July while Bill Bailey and tribute band Bjorn Again also play at the six-day festival - a series of outdoor picnic concerts set against the backdrop of the Victorian Temperate House at Kew Gardens. In previous years these concerts have proved to be a great success with the likes of Blondie, Paul Weller, Status Quo, James Morrison and Gipsy Kings playing. For the ultimate package there is also the option to VIP your evening with picnic hampers, a BBQ at the Pavilion Restaurant and reserved seating.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
