Grab your goggles, slip on a lab coat and get stuck into the Kew Science Festival at Wakehurst.

Join us for a weekend of wild workshops, hands-on experiments, shows and behind the scenes tours that will captivate children and adults alike.

Meet Kew’s scientists and find out what they’re doing to protect rare and threatened plants and fungi.

Unleash your inner scientist as you enter the lab to carry out your very own experiments. Size up a tree, peer down a microscope, hold the world’s largest seed and taste the smallest. Chat to a giant glowing fungus and experience the best tasting chemistry lesson ever!

The festival is set in and around the Millennium Seed Bank, home to the world’s largest wild seed conservation project. With a broad and varied programme designed to appeal to all ages, there’s something for everybody. Come curious, leave inspired.
