Chelsea Fringe 2012

18th January 2012

 

INTRODUCING THE CHELSEA FRINGE Image
 
An exciting new garden fringe festival launches in 2012 to run alongside the established RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
 
Running for 3 weeks over May and June, the Chelsea Fringe will encourage, facilitate and advise individuals and groups in the creation of exciting and innovative horticultural interventions, community initiatives, art happenings, walks, plant sales, talks, exhibitions and a host of other possible events during the 3 weeks.
 
The Festival, which is being directed by journalist and author Tim Richardson, will push the boundaries of what is usually considered appropriate in the sphere of gardening, into areas such as eco-activism, art collaborations and spontaneous events. The hope is that a new constituency of potential gardeners will be attracted by what is on offer, while existing garden fans will find plenty to stimulate them as well.
