We’re Open for Submissions Already
If you already know what you would like to do, Chelsea Fringe, the alternative gardening festival has set the date for 2016 and is now open for submissions.

Want to Know More before Deciding?
The 2015 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 2016.
The Chelsea Fringe is volunteer-run and unfunded, operating as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company [CIC].
