Kew Event - Spices 2015

This year the Kew Summer Festival is celebrating the mysterious, exotic and fragrant world of SPICES

Following on from the success of KewLates during the Alluring Orchid festival in February, the gardens will again open late, each Wednesday until July 1st, from 6.30-9.30pm, giving you full reign to explore the beautiful botanic gardens and experience a host of activities as dusk draws in and the crowds dwindle.

I am very excited, (or should that be ‘keen as mustard’), to be part of the spice action on Wednesday 24th June and Wednesday 1st July.

I shall be in the Palm House with my ‘Origin of the Spices - Smell and Tell Table‘, with lots of things to smell, taste, touch and educate, so come and discover spices that have been used throughout history in the fields of medicine/beauty, trade, food and drink.

Have an evening of discovery – come along to a KewLate, indulge your spice addiction and imbibe a spice-inspired cocktail, improve your mind with a talk, create a spice blend...
