    More details:

    Wolfgang Buttress’ The Hive was inspired by the humble bee’s vital role in our world. And, after winning gold at the 2015 Milan Expo, the spectacular multi-sensory experience has been winning over London audiences in Kew Gardens.

    Located in a beautiful wildflower meadow, The Hive is essentially alive and controlled by the workings of an actual beehive. Find out more about these incredible creatures at these special evenings that'll offer you the opportunity to take part in activities including honey tasting, sketching and listening to fascinating talks about how the black and yellow furry friends live and work. There's also charcuterie, meze and cheese boards, along with summer cocktails and other drinks available to purchase on the night.
