The Chelsea Fringe is an alternative garden festival primarily based in London, but with events across the UK and beyond. The Festival is an open-access platform and is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) run entirely by volunteers. We showcase all kinds of projects from guerrilla gardeners and community growing initiatives to botanical art collaborations and spontaneous performance happenings.
We are always looking for volunteers. The Fringe Organising Committee meets once a month from November until May.
We have all sorts of opportunities to get involved in helping to manage the registration process and make new contacts while supporting our event organisers in the build up to Fringe week, and throughout the Festival itself.

What does volunteering at The Chelsea Fringe Festival involve?
As a Chelsea Fringe project coordinator your job is to act as the main Fringe Festival contact for horticultural event organisers and designers who are aiming to get their projects off the ground. You can help facilitate the projects, while also monitoring their progress and reporting back to Chelsea Fringe HQ.
How much time will I need to dedicate to the volunteer role?
How much time you give the Fringe Festival is entirely up to you. But we expect our project coordinators, marketing or PR volunteers to spend on average 2 – 4 hours per week working on their projects.
Do I have to be a gardener to help with the Chelsea Fringe?
No. You just have to love working with people and helping them bring their ideas to life and watching the public enjoy new green spaces.
What costs might I incur?
We don’t expect you to incur any costs. A lot of your communication will be via email.
