Kew Gardens reveals another stunning line up for Kew The Music
Music, Sun (hopefully) and some of the most luscious surroundings whilst watching the likes of Jools Holland, Björn Again, Elvis Costello, Simple Minds & Bill Bailey...
What better way in which to see your favourite legendary artists than watching them whilst surrounded by amazing greenary, gorgeous waterworks and mystical trees (OK, very big trees, but they could be haunted)? Kew Gardens follow last year's success by hosting more of their 'Kew The Music' nights, with a line up that includes Jools Holland, Björn Again, Elvis Costello, Simple Minds & Bill Bailey. It's a delicious mix of Music, Entertainment and Comedy (with Chas & Dave are supporting Bill Bailey - it'll be a right proper knees up, gertcha!) and all set in the dazzling confines of Kew Gardens, the botonist's home away from home. It's a week long outdoor festival where you won't (hopefully); have drunken revellers walk over your tent just as you've got to sleep, be the one in a chemical toilet that's been pushed over on it's side or end up joining a religious cult... So whether it's a late Mother's Day present (you terrible child), an excuse to get merry whilst watching a consumate entertainer or THE event of your summer, Kew The Music will deliver the goods. Book your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
