London’s Kew Gardens has announced that its festive winter trail will be returning in line with social distancing measures.
Home to over 50,000 living plants, the UNESCO World Heritage site will be offering visitors the chance to experience its unique festive offering once again.
Now in its eighth year, Christmas as Kew provides an opportunity to enjoy the gardens in a completely different way. From twinkling light installations to fiery sculptures and laser projections, it promises to provide an evening the whole family can enjoy. Running from Wednesday November 18th until Sunday January 3rd, the venue has added additional time slots to help with social distancing.
Discussing the seasonal event, Sandra Botterell, Director of Marketing and Commercial Enterprise at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, said: “In a year that has been challenging for many, we are delighted to host Christmas at Kew, and have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that it will be a safe event for all. I am sure you will agree that we could all do with a bit of festive cheer, and I am confident that a wander through our spectacular Gardens, illuminated by over one million lights, will bring joy to our visitors this winter.”
The news comes as Christmas events across the country are called into question. With lockdown measures being tightened across the country events, including Manchester’s Christmas Markets look unlikely to go ahead as planned.
