The latest glorious addition to the Ampersand Events portfolio is our Venue of the Month, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. A showcase of natural beauty, it offers breath-taking landscapes of internationally prized attractions, from its iconic glasshouses full of rare and beautiful plants to historic buildings, botanical art galleries and the soaring treetop walkway.
We sent our sales team to the gardens to discover all this beautiful venue has to offer…
First on the list was a taste of the venue’s summer exhibition, Plantasia. This great display can be included with any upcoming private events between May and September 2014. It promises a fantastical world of botanical wonders and sensory experiences to excite their eyes, enchant their ears, make toes tingle and your spirits soar. From the Barefoot Walk and tai chi sessions to the Gin and Tonic Garden and "plant family croquet”, this special spectacle might change the way you think about plants forever.
It’s an impressive exhibition and showed just what you can do in this fabulous place, making the team very excited to see what awaits us in catering for conferences, weddings and Christmas parties here.
Another highlight of the venue is Kew’s Orangery. Built in 1761 and now grade I listed, it is the largest classical style building in the Gardens. Used as a restaurant during the daytime, the beautiful white building can host extravagant private events during summer months and winter evenings. With its beautiful three-door terrace and high ceilings, this Orangery definitely deserves to be another Ampersand favorite!
Kew Gardens is perfect for weddings, so we couldn’t miss our chance to get involved with the wedding showcase at its Nash Conservatory on the 27th of July. There will be a full house of preferred wedding suppliers, including a contingent from the Ampersand Events team. At our stand, we will show up to 300 brides, grooms and guests how Ampersand Events can make wedding wishes a stunning reality.
The Ampersand Events sales team thoroughly enjoyed exploring and becoming better acquainted with the world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. We just know that helping to create stunning weddings and beautiful events here will be amazing.
