LONDON, Feb 7 — London's Kew Gardens is preparing a two-week family festival focused on the world of Peter Rabbit, with a specially designed trail leading to activity pop-ups, all themed around the beloved children's book.
Opening March 30, the event at the Royal Botanical Gardens will take its inspiration from Beatrix Potter's iconic tales, with elements of the illustrated world juxtaposed against the landscape of Kew Gardens, where crocuses, daffodils and magnolias will be in bloom.
Beginning at Kew's Secluded Garden, visitors will follow an interactive Peter Rabbit trail to a host of activity pop-ups, including a visit to Mr. McGregor's shed where kids will be able to plant their own seeds to bring home.
Children will also be able to choose a Peter Rabbit character to inhabit for the day and make their own fuzzy bunny ears.
Peter Rabbit-themed gifts will be available in the Kew shop.
Kew Gardens is one of London's top visitor attractions, and its Easter festival is an annual highlight for families. In 2017, the festival was focused on another set of beloved creatures from children's literature — the Moomins of the celebrated Finnish tales.
