The Kew Guild Annual Dinner 2020 POSTPONED

The Kew Guild President, David Simpson, is reluctantly postponing the Kew Guild Annual Dinner to be held at Cambridge Cottage, 37 Kew Green, TW9 3AB on Thursday 21st May 2020.

The Dinner provides the perfect opportunity to renew old friendships, make new friends, catch up on news, and meet the current Kew Diploma students and Guild Committee members.

The Guest Speaker will be, Dr Tim Utteridge Head of Identification & Naming at Kew. He is an entertaining speaker and will talk about the work that he and his team are doing in SE Asia.

In addition to this special occasion all day free admission to Kew Gardens has been agreed for all applicants. The President with the assistance of Tony Overland has arranged a menu with an excellent selection for you to choose when applying for your tickets. We have agreed with the caterers that the event will be at the same price as 2019. There will be a cash bar to purchase drinks throughout the event. The current students will organise a cash raffle to help support student travels. There will be no reserved seating.

Any member requiring financial assistance to facilitate attendance at the Dinner should contact Awards Scheme Chairman by Tuesday 31st March.

We look forward to meeting you all at what will be an excellent occasion for the Guild. Please click here for the application form to reserve your place[s]

Yours sincerely,


David Simpson President 2019-20
