Camellia Festival Opening
The 4th Camellia Festival opened at Chiswick House and Gardens on Saturday 1 March. Now on until Sunday 30th March.
The 4th Camellia Festival opened at Chiswick House and Gardens on Saturday, following a preview on Thursday 27th February, to which the Deputy Lieutenant of Hounslow, Ms Maria Pedro attended.
John Watkins, Head of Gardens and Landscapes at English Heritage enlightened the guests on the importance of the Samuel Ware Conservatory and its special camellia collection as well as highlighting the Italian Garden designed by Lewis Kennedy in 1814. This garden is significant in garden history as it represents a return to a more formal garden design after the introduction of the informal English landscape pioneered at Chiswick by William Kent.
The guests were treated to the sight of 'Lady of the Camellias' Ailyn Perez in the dress she will be wearing when she performs Violetta in La Traviata at the Royal Opera House, before changing into elegant day clothes.
