Time Out says

Kew’s annual orchids festival is this year inspired by the blooms of Madagascar. More than 14,000 of the island’s plants are found nowhere else in the world, and thanks to its dazzling natural beauty, there’s loads of wildlife too. A beautiful horticultural display will be up in the Princess of Wales conservatory, showcasing some of the gorgeous orchids under Kew’s care. 

As part of the festival, you can even head to the conservatory after dark to sip cocktails, snack on traditional Malagasy dishes, and watch Malagasy band the Boriza Brothers, and their joyful traditional music. There’s also a cooking demo to show you the taste of Madagascar, and talks by experts so you can hear all about the lovely blooms – all of these are included in your entry. Orchids After Hours is a cracker of a way to spend Valentine’s.
