Chelsea Fringe returns to Nine Elms on the South Bank, with a programme celebrating the area’s rich horticultural heritage.

cover – Chelsea Fringe at Nine Elms on the South Bank programme

Nine Elms on the South Bank draws together a programme of local activities as part of Chelsea Fringe, the international garden festival that’s now in its fourth year and celebrates everything from guerrilla gardeners to community projects and large-scale installations.

The programme at Nine Elms draws inspiration from the area’s horticultural and industrial heritage, celebrates the area’s flourishing green projects and offers a glimpse of the area’s future landscape. Read more about the plans for Nine Elms’ river, parks and gardens.

See the full events programme below.

A burst of colour along Nine Elms Lane will coincide with Chelsea Fringe. A mixture of triumph, single late and lily-flowered tulips have been planted in beds at Prescot Wharf, visible from both the Thames River Path and along Nine Elms Lane. The beds have been planted and are being maintained by Thrive, with tulip bulbs are supplied by Jub Holland.
