Following its postponement due to the pandemic, Chelsea’s prestigious annual floral art show and London’s largest free flower festival Chelsea in Bloom is returning, running from September 20 to 25, and it’s set to be more breath-taking and brilliant than ever.
Coinciding with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show, there will be a wealth of exciting things to see and do as Sloane Street is transformed into a vibrant and verdant wonderland reflecting the theme of ‘Extraordinary Voyages’, inspired by Around The World in 80 Days, the 1872 novel by Jules Verne.
Evoking the spirit of optimism, adventure and the golden age of travel, the neighbourhood’s boutiques, restaurants and hotels will be expressing their own unique interpretation of the theme by adorning themselves with elaborate fresh-floral displays to compete for the hotly contested Chelsea in Bloom awards, with many other special activities planned to celebrate the floral extravaganza.
