The alternative garden festival

WE’RE BACK!

The Chelsea Fringe is back for its sixth year. Last year we reached our 1000th event! This year the Festival will run from 20 May to 4 June; that’s 16 days, three weekends and one Bank Holiday Monday to fill with exciting gardening/arts projects and events.

Interested?

We are inviting individuals and organisations, first-time “Fringers” and veterans to discuss what they might like to do. If you already have a project or event in mind for the alternative gardening festival please get in touch with us at info@chelseafringe.com – here as we are now open for new submissions. And pass this on to anyone else who you think might be interested.

About Us

The 2016 Fringe was a huge success, with some 350 community gardening activities, garden/art installations and happenings, walks, talks, food events, open days, exhibitions and performances across London and far beyond. There was excellent coverage in the national media – newspapers, magazines, radio and television here. We also renewed our broadcast partnership with BBC Radio London (the Robert Elms show) and that will continue in 2017.

The Chelsea Fringe is volunteer-run and unfunded, operating as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company [CIC]

Watch an interview with Festival’s director Tim Richardson on the three weeks event based on the relationship between gardening, art, the city and its inhabitants.
