The Chelsea Fringe in Cirencester is an alternative festival celebrating flowers, gardens and gardening, running between Saturday 20. May and Sunday 4. June.
It launches on Saturday 20. May with a community pop-up garden in the Abbey Grounds Bandstand, Cirencester but throughout the period, visitors are invited to walk the Daisy-chain trail of community gardens and allotments. A programme of ‘Meet the Creative’ events will introduce visitors to some of the volunteers who work so hard to make such a difference to their local area through the care of flowers and gardens in public spaces, from the guerrilla gardeners to local community groups. A map of the Daisy-chain trail will be available from early May from the Visitor Centre and Corinium Radio’s website.
The Festival closes with a Flower Tea-party on Sunday 4. June between 3pm and 5pm. Guests are invited to wear a flower, enjoy a piece of cake and listen to the Singing Florist, fresh from her television success.
The Daisy-chain trail and all the events are free to attend (subject to space) as everyone involved has donated their time to help make this first Chelsea Fringe in Cirencester a success.
The Chelsea Fringe in Cirencester is brought to you by Corinium Radio, a volunteer-led online community radio station based in Cirencester. We are grateful for the support of Cirencester Town Council and the many community groups, schools, businesses and individuals who have helped to make the Festival happen.
