“Take a View” at Leeds Castle Chelsea Fringe: 21st May to 12th June 2016
Floral picture frames will be springing up across the beautiful Leeds Castle estate during Chelsea Fringe this year from the 21st May until the 12th June.
Festooned with colourful and interesting plants and flowers, step into our cleverly placed floral frames and take a ‘selfie’ in front of some of the best views of the 900 year old Castle! After ‘being framed’, visitors are invited to share their pictures on social media using #LCChelseaFringe.
The Gardening and Floristry teams at Leeds Castle will once again create a quirky, fun and interactive spectacle not to be missed this spring.
Every Tuesday and Thursday during the Chelsea Fringe Festival (24th, 26th, 31st May & 2nd, 7th, 9th June), Head Gardener Andrew McCoryn will be giving a specialist talk on the history of the gardens and day to day maintenance with useful tips for visitors to take home. Meet outside the Fairfax Restaurant at 11.30am.
The gardens at the Castle burst into life in the spring and there is plenty of wildlife to spot including black swans, grey squirrels, kingfishers, geese, peacocks and ducks to name but a few.
