The fifth Chelsea Fringe Festival will start on Saturday 20 May 2017 and run for two weeks until 4 June at a host of different venues and settings. Building on the success of the previous festivals, it will feature a wonderful mixture of public spectacles, horticultural happenings and community celebrations.
Chelsea Fringe is all about harnessing and spreading some of the excitement and energy that fizzes around gardens and gardening. The idea is to give people the freedom and opportunity to express themselves through the medium of plants and gardens, to open up possibilities and to allow full participation.
