If you haven’t done so already, be sure to enter 21 to 29 May in your diaries for a diverse and stunningly beautiful festival, the Chelsea Fringe.
If you love historic buildings dotted around the majestic River Thames with a rare combination of ornate gardens and plant and vegetable life from all over the world, then this festival and its settings is the one for you.
The Chelsea Fringe with its festival buzz stretches over nine days and offers events throughout this time. It includes two action packed weekends and part of it coincides with the internationally renowned Chelsea Flower Show.
There are so many different events on offer that the visitor is advised to log on to the Chelsea Fringe website to get a full flavour of the varying venues. As a taster of what is to come a few are amplified here.
Don’t be fooled by the name, the Fringe is not a Chelsea exclusive event, with activities across London as well as in the past as far as Monmouth, Bristol, Margate, Leeds, and even the Isle of Mull.
The last decade has seen more than 1,000 events in 20+ countries, from community garden celebrations, to walks, workshops and art installations. Run by volunteers it is not-for-profit, with most events free.
Chelsea Fringe 2022
Now entering its 11th year, in 2020 and 2021 the event was predominantly an online occasion, however oganisers are confident that the 2022 Fringe will be a real event.
“We detect a real hunger out there among people who are desperate to get out and do things,” says Tim Richardson, Fringe founder. “So we’re hoping that gardeners and garden enthusiasts will get their thinking caps on and come up with some really exciting and quirky ideas for this year’s festival. As ever, just about anything goes — and we love being surprised each year by the events people want to put on.”
