RHS Chelsea Flower Show CANCELLED
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
This event has been cancelled.
The Royal Horticultural Society has made the decision to cancel multiple events scheduled for 2020. This will include the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In its press statement, the RHS said: ‘Following the Government update on 16 March 2020 and ongoing situation with COVID-19, all RHS Shows, Garden events and school visits will be cancelled with immediate effect until 30 June 2020. RHS Gardens remain open, with a number of increased precautionary measures in place. This is a worldwide unprecedented and challenging time for so many people and of course the health and safety of our members, visitors, exhibitors and staff remains our number one priority.’
The Chelsea Flower Show has taken place annually (apart from a few gaps during the two world wars) for more than 100 years.
More information about the organisation’s decision to cancel can be found on the RHS website.
