Kew Gardens rolls out Moomins experience for Easter

‘We are delighted to be partnering with the Moomins to create a magical Easter festival here at Kew,’ says Kew’s Adam Farrar.

The Moomins are set to visit London’s Kew Gardens this Easter, with a brand new experience for fans to enjoy.

Guests can expect an activity packed day out at the gardens, which will be filled with flowering daffodils, magnolias and crocuses.

Kicking off at Victoria Gate, an interactive trail will explore the hidden depths of the gardens, which will finish up at the Moomin Camp in the wild woodland of the Conservation Area.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the Moomins to create a magical Easter festival here at Kew,” said Adam Farrar, head of commercial activities at Kew.

“Our interactive Moomin trail and activities will give youngsters the opportunity to explore the wilder parts of the Gardens and witness the incredible beauty of Kew in spring.”

While on their way round the trail, kids will be able to get creative with the interactive points. Plus, fans could even catch a glimpse of the Moomins in the trees.

In addition, there will be a range of workshop tents for kids to enjoy, as well as Moomin play dens.

Sophia Jansson, creative director of Moomin Characters and niece of Moomins creator, Tove Jansson, added: “All of the inhabitants of Moominvalley possess a deep love and respect for nature, from the Hemulens who spend their time collecting plants or butterflies to the adventurous Snufkin, whose music is inspired by the landscape around him.

“So we couldn’t be happier to be working with the world-renowned team at Kew to inspire a similar love of nature in families and young visitors to the Gardens.”
