Chelsea Fringe Festival

Chelsea Fringe Festival

The seventh Chelsea Fringe will start on Saturday 19th May 2018 and run for nine days until 27th May at a host of different venues and settings. Building on the success of the previous Chelsea Fringe festivals, it will feature a wonderful mixture of public spectacles, horticultural happenings and community celebrations.

The 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 celebrate Chelsea Fringe Festival, Walthamstow Wetlands will be hosting a series of events. Please see below for details.

To celebrate the Chelsea Fringe Festival, Walthamstow Wetlands will be home to a POP-UP collection of creations by local artisans.
