Il Festival delle orchidee

Ogni anno a febbraio il complesso di giardini Kew Garden di Londra, Patrimonio dell’umanità Unesco, ospita il Festival delle orchidee, fiori dai colori sgargianti e variegati. Mentre l’anno scorso il Paese di riferimento era la Thailandia, quest’anno la scelta è ricaduta sulla Colombia, che vede al suo interno ben 4270 specie di orchidee. Questo vuol dire anche che l’ambientazione del Festival risentirà delle atmosfere sudamericane per posizionare le orchidee, come ad esempio una foresta pluviale, o il “fiume arcobaleno” di Caño Cristales e uno scenario volto a evocare il mitico El Dorado. Non mancheranno un sottofondo musicale a tema e piatti tradizionali tutti da gustare. Dopo la chiusura ci si potrà fermare per ammirare danze, spettacoli musicali e cocktail tipici per i Kew After Hours.
