We all need a little sunshine right now, and Kew the Music is back for July 2021


A series of stellar picnic concerts is returning this summer. Tickets are on sale now for Kew the Music 2021, five evenings of live performances against the beautiful backdrop of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

The series begins with a bang as the legendary Van Morrison headlines on Tuesday 6 July. An incredibly talented roster of artists will follow throughout the week, including international pop acts such as James Blunt and Bananarama, DJ Spoony playing garage hits and the sweet melodies of Rebecca Ferguson.

Guests can bring their own picnic or sample food from the tasty street food stalls, and there will also be a fully-stocked open-air bar for you to get into the festival spirit.

Options for VIP packages include a scrumptious summer BBQ in the Grade I listed Orangery building with views over the gardens. Those who don’t want to pack their own picnic can order a gourmet hamper from delicatessen Panzer’s which includes sweet and savoury treats such as homemade brownies and scotch eggs.
