Festival Partner
We are delighted to be working with South London Botantical Institute as our Festival Partner.
Founded in 1910 in Tulse Hill, the South London Botanical Institute has a beautiful botanical garden and runs a wide range of courses, workshops, school visits and events for all ages.  A 'little gem of a place' where all are welcome to discover more about plants and the plant world.
SLBI will be programming several events across the festival - and don't forget to make a special trip to see their window displays - they were magnificent last year!
