Tony Sheen (CAFOD Westminster Community Participation Co-ordinator), Niki Psarias (Caritas Westminster Lead for Food) and Colette Joyce (Westminster Justice and Peace Co-ordinator) are coming together to lead this summer outing, enjoying the beauty of nature and visiting the ‘Food Forever Festival‘ sculptures and art works at the world famous botanical gardens at Kew. You are welcome to join us!
Protecting sustainable food sources is a major theme of social justice that is of great concern to CAFOD, Caritas and Justice & Peace.
Meet inside Kew Gardens at the Victoria Gate entrance at 11.00am.
We will begin together with a short introduction to the Festival and an opening prayer and convene again in the same place at 4.00pm for a time of sharing and a closing prayer. You are welcome to walk with us or to explore the gardens at your own pace.
You can choose to bring a picnic to eat together (weather permitting!) or you can go independently to any of Kew’s restaurants or food outlets.
You will need to book your own tickets. We recommend doing this at the earliest opportunity, booking in advance on the Kew website, to ensure your place, although tickets can also be purchased on the day. Tickets vary in price depending on number and type bought. A standard single adult ticket booked online in advance costs £15.
Note that there are special rates for children, families, young people, students, visitors with disabilities and senior citizens 65+
There is a special price of £1 for people on Universal Credit, Pension Credit or Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
