Kew the Music 2012

James Morrison, Will Young, M People, the Gipsy Kings and Status Quo – just some of the acts headlining at this year’s Kew the Music, a week-long celebration of world-class music at Kew Gardens, London.

Pack a picnic, kick back and enjoy the music against the stunning backdrop of the Victoria Temperate House. Or get Peyton & Byrne to do the work for you – ask them to reserve one of their sumptuous hampers, which start at £48. If al fresco dining isn’t your thing, how about a glorious three-course meal with Champagne reception in Kew’s Marianne North Gallery? At £279 it’s not cheap, but the package includes the chance to enjoy the concert from a private garden, so you’ll get the VIP treatment.

Kew the Music runs from 3 to 8 July, but you can book your tickets now.
