Chelsea Fringe 2013 gardens and sponsorship opportunities

The Chelsea Fringe Garden Festival is in its second year. Congratulations to all who have helped make it happen – and especially to Tim Richardson, the Festival Director. What the Chelsea Fringe needs next is sponsors. I would like to suggest Richard Branson to sponsor the main event. He has given us the Virgin London Marathon, so why not the Virgin London Chelsea Fringe? It would also be good to have sponsors for Chelsea Fringe Show Gardens (see my suggested Chelsea Fringe Sponsorship Opportunities]. The right garden in the right place could give the sponsor more bangs/buck than an ordinary garden in the Chelsea Flower Show. London developers etc (eg of hotel gardens, office gardens, roof gardens and small public open spaces) could give them a special treatment and open them for the 3 weeks of the Chelsea Fringe. The developers of Battersea Power Station have an even better idea: they are LAUNCHING the development of a luxurious housing project with the creation of a 2.5 acre Pop-Up Park as part of the 2013 Chelsea Fringe Festival. The design is by LDA landscape architects, who also managed the delivery of the 2012 Olympic Park.

    I went to the Atheneum hotel for the Guide to Green Scent event – the living wall described complete with plant list by Daniel Bell introduced to 2 different cocktails, which tasted but couldn’t finish as too large called The Secret Garden and a Violet mist martini, very good and some canapes too. But best of all was the perfume sampling, a heady mix indeed!

      Thank you. I have been through the Chelsea Fringe website lots of times to try and find interesting events to visit. The site has a clean modern appearance but I find it very reluctant to yield any useful information! My suggestion is for it to have an alternative way of presenting the information. Eg all the information on places and events could also be shown in blog format so that you can (1) scroll through them from first to last (2) use categories, as on this blog, to find groups of events eg there could be categories for Scent Events, Alcoholic Events, Floral Events, Theatrical Events, Show Garden Events etc
