Joseph Hooker Exhibition
25 March - 17 September
Learn how Joseph Hooker, director of Kew Gardens in the late 19th century, changed the face of botanical science. Considered one of the most important men of science and hailed the ‘King of Kew’, move through a series of delicate yet vibrant drawings, paintings and prints from his travels all over the world.
Spring meeting

Save the date: Moomins are coming to Kew Gardens

This Easter we invite the Moomins to Kew. As they get up to all sorts of mischief and fun, let the children explore the wilder parts of the Gardens whilst you relax in the Moomins den.
More acts announced for Kew the Music

We have All Saints added to our line-up supported by the incomparable Melanie C.
Exclusively book your tickets before general release to the public on Wednesday 15 March.
All Saints supported by Melanie C
13 July

All Saints recently returned, back on top, with their new album Red Flag. The irrepressible girl-band touched by sharply honed influences from The Shirelles through 90s hip hop, disco and slouchy club electronica will perform their string of impeccable street-pop hits.

Razorlight
12 July

Two times BRIT and NME nominee, Razorlight quickly became one of the key bands of the new millennium. With a new line-up, the reinvigorated Razorlight is set to confirm its place as one of the most compelling, maverick guitar bands to have emerged from the UK.
Passenger
11 July
Backed by a five-piece band, for the first time in many years, hear tracks from his new album and classics such as Let Her Go.
Haçienda Classiçal
14 July
This unique evening of classic dance tracks, innovatively accompanied by a live orchestra, has been arranged especially for Kew the Music.
James
15 July
Topping the charts again last year with their fourteenth album, expect new tracks as well as classics from their back catalogue.
