Kew Gardens is always a brilliant day out. Our youndest team members love to have a play and explore in the Children’s Garden and its great fun for the rest of the family. An oasis in London and this October autumn half term there’s an array of fun-filled workshops, performances and storytelling for families to enjoy.
Discover the fascinating tales, legends and people behind plant names in a programme of storytelling. From gods and goddesses to famous explorers and historical figures, there are centuries of anecdotes to be discovered with storyteller Rachel Rose Reid.
Kids will have the chance to get on stage with the School of Comedy and learn how to entertain a crowd, improvisation techniques and tips on how to write hilarious jokes.
Delve into the world of fungi names through interactive sessions and follow specially made trails to find fungi in the Gardens. Kew experts will share the meanings behind the nomenclature and have real-life specimens to examine.
Autumn Antics will welcome you inside the festival tents to explore Kew’s wild stories and the discoveries that have shaped the Gardens.
