      What we do/ Our Projects/ Chelsea Flower Show

      With 108 years of shows behind them, the Royal Horticultural Society needed our insight to help reschedule its renowned Chelsea Flower Show

      Restricted by the council to run during a set time of the year, Covid-19 posed an enforced but exciting opportunity to run the society’s first ever autumnal show.

      The show had several restrictive conditions in place and we had to address these in order to obtain technical approval. We had to account for reduced visitor capacity - lowering the number of visitors from 160,000 to 140,000 and increasing the length of the event from five days to six ensured the event could go ahead safely.  

      Closely monitoring the application was a crucial element of the project’s success. We liaised closely with the case officer to ensure the smooth progress of the application.  

      Dedicated to achieving the right permission on time and in budget, we consulted the local planning authority at every stage.  

      We worked diligently to ensure that the permission was secured on time, allowing the famed flower show to take place in the autumn.
