This August, Kew Gardens will be holding a series of late-night openings, with the glass works of Dale Chihuly lit up for the evening.

As the sun goes down, the lights come up, and if timed just right, visitors can watch the sun set over Kew’s landscape and see Chihuly’s artwork begin to glow under the evening sky.

The Temperate House and Waterlily House will also be open in the evening, and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art will be open for visitors to explore artwork from Chihuly’s 50-year career.

The bars and cafes will be open, and music will be played though the evening.

Opens at 7.30pm-10:30pm, 15 August – 26 October, Thursdays – Saturdays

Tickets cost £18 and can be booked here.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
