'THE DREAM OF THE INDIANOS' AT RHS HAMPTON COURT PALACE GARDEN FESTIVAL WINS SILVER MEDAL
A glimpse back in time to 19th century north west Spain - The Spanish Tourist Office, in collaboration with Turismo de Galicia, retold the story of 19th century Indianos who emigrated from their home of Galicia to find fortune in foreign lands. Returning to their homeland, fortune in hand, they built lavish mansions and gardens which were ambitiously portrayed through 'The Dream of the Indianos' show garden, designed by Rose McMonigall. Two Indianos bring the story to life, dressed in flamboyant yet formal style, head-to-toe in white as was customary in this period. Here are a selection of images from the spectacle.
We are delighted to be awarded a silver medal at RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival.
To enjoy some of the flavours of Galicia closer to home, Ibérica Restaurants have designed a special Galicia-themed menu available throughout the month of July in their UK restaurants located in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Leeds. This menu is part of Ibérica's regional tour which showcases the flavours of Spain.
