Welcome to all friends and visitors to Kew

Welcome to all friends and visitors, Kew has many exciting - and sparkling - events as autumn turns to winter. There are spooky goings-on at the National Archives. Novelist Tracy Borman speaks on November 14th about the sinister world of the early Stuart court, as suspected sorcery and and the Gunpowder Plot unfolded. A Fireworks Spectacular is being held at the Richmond Athletic Ground on Sunday November 3rd , and earlier that day, the Kew Village Market has food, crafts and music from “Shifty Little Sister” and “Harmonica Lewinsky”. From 28th November, our local theatre group Q2 Players open their latest production, “Living Memory” at the National Archives. As we start to plan for Christmas, there’s a fundraising dinner on 27th November at the Kew Gardens Hotel. - helping our local traders raise money for the beautiful lights that glitter in Kew Village throughout the festive season. The Barn Church hold their Christmas Fair on Saturday 30th November. Inspiration for presents will be found on the craft stalls, there'll be delicious food, live music and entertainment. A special request – the team who create the Kew Sparkle, the Christmas evening of stalls, food and music in the Village, would love some help at various times on the day. Just email if you’d like to get involved!
