Paloma Faith, Caro Emerald, UB40, The Specials and Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra are on the Kew the Music line-up when it returns for more summer concerts in July 2015. The series of outdoor picnic concerts set against the backdrop of the Victorian Temperate House at Kew Gardens has been running for five years now and its sixth year is set to be just as magical. 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.
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.
