4 February - 5 March 2017
Kew Gardens will be hosting a colourful celebration of India's vibrant plants and culture with food, music and workshops.
Kew Lates will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 February throughout the Orchids Festival from 6pm until 9:30pm (last entry at 9pm). Join us after dark for a series of intimate evenings among thousands of orchids and tropical flower displays at our 2017 Orchids Festival.
I’ll be hosting drop in sessions, talking about how plants are used in Indian cooking for their healing properties and there’ll be tastings of spices and herbs.
There will be a chance to do some bodhi leaf colouring, try on traditional Indian clothing, have your hands decorated with plant based henna and connect to the earth through nature yoga.
In addition, a variety of Kew experts from our Science and Horticultural teams will be on hand to chat to you about their fascinating work and how you can care for your orchids at home. Delicious Indian food and drink will also be available for purchase from bars and pop-up shops.
