Orchids Festival

10:00am – 3:30pm
£5.75 – £13.50
Festival

Held in the Princess of Wales Conservatory each year, the Orchid Festival is a fantastic opportunity to see some of the most beautiful orchids in the world.

This year’s exhibit will focus on Colombia with plenty of events and talks. There will be special events during half-term (Feb 18th – 24th between 10.30am – 4pm) including an hourly parade, flower-costume workshops, drumming and dancing. There will be After-Hours events (£18 entry) with live music from a Latin big band, Columbian Street Food, local dancers, expert talks on Columbian Coffee and more. The Tropical and Orchid nurseries will also be open for tours (£12 in addition to entry, booking required) offering a rare chance to go behind the scenes at Kew.

The event itself is free, but you do have to pay for entry to the gardens. The gate prices are £13.50 for adults, £4.50 for under-sixteens, £12 for concessions and £6.75 for students (but these are set to change from February 1st). You can save a pound per ticket if you book in advance. Local residents enter for £10 and entry is free for the visually impaired and essential carers.
