Opening to the public on Saturday 30th July, London's new floating garden Farmopolis has announced the schedule for it's jame-packed summer programme. The arts and culture agenda is set to run throughout the whole of August, offering all the best in poetry, arts and inspiration workshops lead by pioneers of each field.

Partnering with the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, Farmopolis has salvaged tens of thousands of Chelsea's plants, to create a truly unique floating garden surrounded by the iconic vistas of the Thames. The incredible space will host a dynamic year-round programme of live music, experiential supperclubs, literary salons, immersive theatre, creative workshops and talks, transforming the Jetty into a hub of creativity and wellbeing and offer visitors the opportunity to re-home a piece of RHS Chelsea Flower Show history. 

Guests will be able to drop in at any time to sample the food, experiences and workshops that will be on offer throughout the year. They will include children’s shows by Arcola Theatre, scholarly hi-jinx from Literary Death Match, live music curated by Mahogany sessions, floral face-painting, botanical jewellery classes, dream potion making, creative workshops in collaboration with Quodo, Biomodd and much more.

The Farmopolis cafe will be serving narrative driven and seasonal food and drink throughout the day. Visitors will also be able to adopt a rescued plant from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show or help make Chelsea’s Children from clippings, in the House of Wayward area. Visitors are advised to check on for specific event times and to guarantee a space at the popular events.
