Art, Gardens And Words is part of the Chelsea Fringe!

The Plantation Garden

On May 24th we will be holding a garden festival at the beautiful Plantation Garden on Earlham Road, Norwich. Shortly we will be putting a page on this blog dedicated to this project so you can find out more. In the meantime we've received the exciting news that the garden festival is now part of the Chelsea Fringe, a first for this region!

Here’s a little bit about the Chelsea Fringe:

Now in its third year, the Chelsea Fringe is an alternative gardening festival based across the UK and beyond -- celebrating everything from guerilla gardeners, community projects, large-scale installations, performance art, food events, street happenings, performances and much more in between. It's an open-access fringe festival, which means that if it's about plants, gardens, flowers or landscape, and it's interesting or original and quirky -- then it's in. The Chelsea Fringe is fringe to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show -- but it’s different because it spreads far and wide, covering everything that could be conceivably linked with gardens, plants, landscape and environment. The three weeks of the 2013 Fringe covered more than 250 events and attracted more than 162, 000 visitors, and included a range of installations at iconic Battersea Power Station, a remarkable garden made out of a disused gents toilet in Peckham and a BBC Gardener's Question Time Fringe special from Hoxton Hall.
