Registration opens for The Chelsea Fringe 2018

Chelsea Fringe

Alternative garden festival The Chelsea Fringe has announced dates for 2018, its seventh year.

The 2018 Fringe will run for nine days from Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 May, with hundreds of eclectic events expected to take place across London, the UK, and worldwide as the globe’s fastest-growing Fringe festival continues to expand.

“I’m hugely excited to be announcing our seventh Chelsea Fringe, and a new nine-day programme that promises to create more buzz and excitement than ever before,” explains festival director Tim Richardson.

“The Fringe’s best events are the ones that involve people meeting up in a festive atmosphere – whether that’s around a talk, a walk, a demonstration, an open day or a performance, and projects for 2018 are already beginning to roll in.”

The 2017 Fringe was once again a huge success, with some 200 community gardening activities, garden/art installations and happenings, walks, talks, food events, open days, exhibitions and performances across London and beyond.

Since its inception in 2011, the independent, unfunded and volunteer-run Fringe has now seen more than 1,400 events created for the festival. Gardening and plants remain at the heart of the Fringe, but the organisers encourage participants to devise events involving food, arts and crafts, health and science, poetry and film.

Contributors and venues to date have included community garden groups, artists, poets, chefs, galleries, schools, a cemetery park and major institutions such as the Geffrye Museum, Kew, the Inner Temple, the Natural History Museum and Covent Garden Flower Market, among many others.

The festival now reaches well beyond Chelsea; not just to every quarter of London, but also to the far corners of the UK and around the world. Events have taken place on the Isle of Mull, in Monmouth, Margate, Leeds, Bristol and Henley-on-Thames, and the Fringe’s global appeal has been underlined by participants signing up in Sweden, Poland, Italy, Australia and Japan.

The Chelsea Fringe is now inviting individuals and organisations, first-timers and Fringe veterans, to contact info@chelseafringe.com outlining what they propose to do as part of the 2018 festival programme.

Formal registration continues until the end of the Fringe, but potential event organisers are encouraged to make contact as soon as possible.
