Open-air events in one of the most unique venues in Kent
Relaxed evenings of theatre and music at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens – with a spectacular view over the Weald.
The beautiful Walled Garden at Riverhill Himalayan Gardens has always offered a perfect venue for the Arts. A lively mix of artists have graced the terraces, including sculptors, musicians, theatre companies, poets, and 2016’s Photographer in Residence Manu Palomeque – so you can be sure to find something to meet everybody’s taste.
The Walled Garden – a centre piece of the Gardens – was restored in 2013. The unique design by Mark Watts & Diana May reflects the traditional role of the space as a kitchen garden, and the heritage of many of the plants and shrubs at Riverhill, taking inspiration from the cultivation terraces in the Himalayas. With Julian Wild’s stunning work Incomplete System at the centre of the water feature and one of the most spectacular views in Kent, The Walled Garden at Riverhill is truly a ‘must-visit’ venue for open-air events.
2016’s programme sees the return of 3 acclaimed theatre companies. The Handlebards bring their rib-tickling, bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, The Changeling Theatre Company return with She Stoops to Conquer, and Tonbridge School showcase Molliere’s The Miser.
New for 2016 is Afternoon Tea & Jazz – an event so popular that tickets sold out within days & a second date was added to the calendar. And for the first time this year Riverhill celebrate Father’s Day weekend with Chill@Riverhill, a fantastic mix of music, beer & BBQ.
