Programme announced for Chelsea Fringe 2017

A floating pocket park will be the centrepiece of this year’s Chelsea Fringe.

The alternative garden festival, now in its sixth year, will run from 20 May to 4 June, and feature a variety of garden-related events across London, including exhibitions, installations, walks, talks, workshops and open days.

The pocket park, by garden designer Tony Woods, will be made up of 730sqm of linked pontoons, with lawns, decking, pergolas, and bee-friendly planted borders. During the festival it will host a series of talks and events.

Other eclectic highlights of the fringe include:

  • a gigantism day at Lauriston Primary School in east London on 20 May, where visitors can plant sunflowers or contribute to a huge artwork
  • the Inner Temple Dog Show, on 21 May
  • Folk & Flowers music night at Oxford House, Bethnal Green, on 2 June
  • new Thameside rotating seats-planters, designed by Tord Boontje
  • an exhibition of floral-inspired jewellery at Contemporary Applied Arts, from 27 April–3 June

There will also be satellite events taking place outside London.

Festival founder-director Tim Richardson, said: “It’s always a time of excitement when projects start to register for the fringe, not least because we are not always sure exactly what they are going to be like. The open-access ethos of the festival has led to wild variety among the 1,100-plus events in the fringe over its five years’ of existence so far. We are looking forward to even more events which surprise and delight in 2017.”
