to the Chelsea Fringe Festival 2018! This map is an introduction to some of the many events taking place as part of the 7th international alternative garden festival, the ‘Fringe’ to the world-famous Chelsea Flower Show. Inside this programme you will find fun facts about this unique event, which includes community-garden activities, art installations, performances, food events, walks and talks. There is also a map showing the locations of a number of registered Fringe events – but remember, more will have joined since this guide went to press. So the best place for up-to-date information on everything that’s going on is our website:

We hope you will feel inspired to visit some of the green-fingered, open-hearted, inspired and inspiring people taking part in the festival. Tim Richardson, Director
