Amicia de Moubray is a journalist, author and owner of a beautiful garden open to the public in Kent. She’s been involved with the Chelsea Fringe from the very beginning. In fact, Amicia was responsible for starting the whole satellite Fringe ‘thing’ – by putting on her own events and recruiting others nearby to do the same. Thus Chelsea Fringe Kent was born.
