The RHS London Spring Fair Late, 1 April 2014The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the UK's leading gardening charity, will hold its annual RHS London Spring Fair Late on 1 April 2014.
Held in the iconic Lindley Hall in Westminster, the evening event will offer Londoners a chance to celebrate the arrival of spring in style with an eclectic evening of music and food.
Visitors can dance and sing along to a catalogue of 80s and 90s covers from acclaimed ukulele band, The Mother Ukers, whilst sipping seasonal floral cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary's pop-up bar. In addition, pies and pasties will serve as tasty treats, alongside delicious organic cakes from Cakehole and a selection of savoury delights from Pimlico locals, Rippon Cheese.
Thirst aid also comes in the form of a range of beers and wines from The Real Ale Company, featuring London based Hiver Beer. Meet the founder and brewer of Hiver, Hannah Rhodes and learn all about the honey brewing process, from bumblebee to beer. The London Beekeepers' Association will also be on hand to provide advice on all things bee-related, including how to keep them in urban areas.
Find the answers to all your gardening questions at the RHS Advisory Desk and learn from their compost clinic. Visitors will also be able to stand in awe of ‘indoor weather' provided by lighting students from Rose Bruford College, whose storm clouds will provide a stunning backdrop to the hall.
Get involved with interactive workshops where visitors can craft their own blooms from paper or even try the real thing with spring flower arranging classes run by the London branch of the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies. Alternatively, buy some ready-made creations from floral exhibitors such as Plants 4 Presents, Bonsai Kai and many more.
The RHS London Spring Fair Late takes place between 6pm and 9pm.
