Forthcoming Events:

Only events open to the general public are listed here, not private or corporate events.

Kew Gardens Adult Learning

September 5, 12, 19, 26 between 2-3pm. These are all Tuesdays.


This is a short series of lessons, enabling people to enjoy their tai chi in the beautiful surroundings of Kew. Not only will it be nice for people to be able to remind themselves of their experiences during Friend's Week, it will also be suitable for people who have never tried tai chi before.  It will be in a different (but equally serene and nature-loving) location.
Friends will get a discounted rate on the course fee, so it's really very worthwhile joining as a Friend. Information on this course is at the link below:

Kew Gardens Friends Week Monday 16th May - Sunday 22nd May 2016

 Kew has organised a week of a whole variety of activities especially for Friends of Kew Gardens. Tai chi sessions are at 9:00-10:20 am every day Mon - Sun and two afternoon sessions on Sat and Sun only at 2:00-3:20pm. Theoretically these are two 40 minute sessions, but the way they're run with a rotating carousel of tai chi activities, people can just join in whenever they arrive, stay for as long or short as they like, so don't worry about having to arrive for the start of any session.
