Chihuly NightsAs part of Chihuly at Kew: Reflections on nature, Kew Gardens presents Chihuly Nights, providing the chance to experience a series of exclusive events at sundown. Running across 33 nights, the events showcase the striking glass artworks by Dale Chihuly in an entirely different light. As the sun goes down, the lights come up and Chihuly's works are beautifully illuminated and framed by the sun as it starts to set. As visitors make their way through the exhibition, they will be able to enjoy uplifting music that's been specially curated to accompany the exhibition. There will also be food and drink available and the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art will be open for visitors to explore artwork from Chihuly's 50-year career.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
