For the first time in the 108-year history of the Show, the RHS are postponing #RHSChelsea 2021 to take place in the autumn instead of spring, due to the worldwide pandemic. The Show will now run between 21-26 September.
"With the coronavirus rate currently as high as it is, we have a responsibility to our exhibitors and everyone involved in the Show, our visitors, partners, volunteers and staff, to delay the 2021 RHS Chelsea Flower Show to later in the year, when millions more people will have been vaccinated and it is more likely that the levels of infection will have reduced substantially.
We will be in touch with everyone who has purchased a ticket for the event to date. We are asking that ticket holders please refrain from contacting us immediately so that we can handle this situation as efficiently as possible.
In addition to the autumn event, we will once again hold our hugely successful RHS Virtual Chelsea Flower Show online during the May Show week (18-23 May), which millions of people across the UK and around the world tuned in to enjoy last year. We’ll keep you updated on plans for our virtual celebration of the Show.
We hope as they are later in the year, that #RHSHamptonCourt and #RHSTattonPark may continue, but we will continue to follow Government advice and will update if this changes."
