All things horticulture take root once again this month across Nine Elms and Vauxhall, as the alternative garden festival sprouts up for a sixth year.
Chelsea Fringe is back!
All things horticulture take root once again this month across London, the UK and beyond, as the alternative garden festival sprouts up for a sixth year.
The festival celebrates everything from guerrilla gardeners, community projects, large-scale installations, performance art, food events, street happenings, performances and all things green in between.
Chelsea Fringe at Nine Elms will showcase local community events around Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea, where horticulture and gardens have a strong heritage and continue to define the area. After all, this is where the first pineapple was grown in the UK, the first asparagus plant, and home to The Garden Museum!
Local green landmarks include New Covent Garden Market, Battersea Park, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, Lambeth Palace gardens and many more green spaces.
Chelsea Fringe is our chance to celebrate our heritage but also look to the future: it will highlight the area’s flourishing communities, whilst giving a glimpse of things to come as Nine Elms grows. Projects will cover everything conceivably linked with gardens, plants, landscape and environment, with most events free and un-ticketed.
