Postcard Gardens

Postcard Exhibition

  • 17 May — 7 June 2015 *on now

The Postcard Gardens is an exhibition of artistically crafted postcards and exploratory text centred on a garden theme. Each card had been chosen for its relations to all things green. Delve into each artist’s longstanding exploration of landscape and enjoy the magical nature of the Chelsea Fringe.

The postcards come from a range of artistic mediums from unknown artists to galleries contributors. This is sure to make for an intriguing display of miniature artworks across different platforms, each sharing the theme of nature.

As part of Postcard Gardens, Oxford House invites visitors and artists of all ages to ‘draw their garden on a postcard’. All posted entries will join the exhibition on the postcard-wall and a prize will be given to the best entry. Come to Oxford House to pick up a blank postcard and send it or bring it back by the end of the month.

Suitable for

  • Any age

Folk and Flowers

Folk & Flowers w/ special guests: Hazel Askew & Stuart Forester

  • 29 May 2015 From 7:30pm

Enjoy an evening of folk music specially compiled to complement the Chelsea Fringe Festival. The music will range from the traditional to the contemporary, the serious to hilarious - and show how nature is central to folk.

There is a whole language in folk music built around plants & flowers – roses for love, willows for weeping and rue for regret – but watch as they unearth in musical form some of the less well known ideas like the role of gardeners as wicked tempters of young girls!

Dive into a world of songs that look at how land and cultivation has been viewed over the centuries with two very different protest songs.

Suitable for

  • Any age
