More Information about Kew The Music 2014 Tickets

COMPLETELY NEW SITE FOR THE CONCERTS WITHIN KEW GARDENS.

Temperate House site closes:
The Temperate House closed in August 2013, to allow Kew to undertake a vital five year restoration project, costing £34.3 million. The project will restore the Temperate House and its surrounding landscape, and convert the adjoining Evolution House into a world-class public engagement centre.
Therefore for the first time in the history of the Kew the Music concerts they will not take place with the backdrop of the Temperate House.

The new site is the Great Lawn opposite Kew Palace.
There are improved sight lines of the stage.
There is only 1 reserved enclosure rather than the 2 of previous years.
There will be a specially built raised platform disabled area (limited to 1 carer per disabled person).

TICKET INFORMATION
You can still book for the reserved enclosure (see arena map). There will be a limited number of tickets for the reserved area, where you can picnic in the front section of the arena - perfect for those not able to arrive in time to gain entry at the beginning of the evening. Please note seating is on a first come first served basis and no chairs, rugs, tables or picnics will be provided.
Child price 1-16 (inclusive)
Under 12 months free entry and no ticket required.
