    Celebrating 71 years of the Kew Horticultural Show!

    It is one of the few produce shows in the London area that still uses a large marquee to display prize winning fruit flowers and vegetables alongside cakes, preserves and handicrafts.

    There are also categories for children's entries.

    Around Kew Green there are many stalls a BBQ and tea tent, sideshows and a jaz band. Among the crowds there is a village atmosphere of people greeting old friends, but of course all are welcome.

    The stalls open at 11am, the displays in the marquee open at 1.30 pm after the judging has taken place. The prizes will be awarded at 4.30 pm by Richard Barley, Director of Horticultural at the Royal Botanic Gardens and the produce will be auctioned at 5.30 pm.
