Houseplant Festival 2020

The Houseplant Festival curated by Noughticulture is back! And this year we’ve grown, spreading the festival out over three days to allow for a safe and socially distanced experience.

After a sell-out debut event in 2019, we are delighted to be able to return with more houseplants than ever in 2020. Once again we’ll be filling the Garden Museum with a curated selection of plant shops, stylists, artists and designers chosen by urban gardening writer and author Alice Vincent (aka @noughticulture).

Ticket info

Tickets are available by online pre-booking only. Please select your time slot when booking. Please arrive at the beginning of your time slot as you must leave by the end of the hour. This does not include the cafe or the gardens.

Tier 2 
As of Saturday 17th October, London will be in Tier 2 restrictions.
As a Covid-19 safe venue we are able to go ahead with our events programme and the Houseplant Festival will be going ahead with added measures to ensure everyone’s safety.
