Do you want to go to Chelsea?

Do you want to go to Chelsea?

LIVERPOOL is smelling of roses. The city is getting ready to exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the first time since the flower power days of 1967.

The Chelsea exhibit is part of Liverpool Fragrant, a major artistic highlight of European Capital of Culture 2008, led by international visual artist Jyll Bradley.

Entitled Mr Roscoe’s Garden, the design for Liverpool’s Chelsea exhibit is inspired by William Roscoe, who founded Liverpool’s Botanical Collection in 1803.

Central to Liverpool’s Chelsea exhibit will be a small greenhouse, emulating Roscoe’s own personal greenhouse at his home in Liverpool.

The Liverpool Culture Company commissioned Bradley as artist in residence at the city’s Botanical Collection where she has worked with staff in the Parks and Environment Service to uncover the story of the 200-year-old collection for the first time. Fragrant will culminate in September 2008 with the publication of a special book and a photographic exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery

The Liverpool Culture Company has teamed up with Liverpool Confidential to offer a pair of tickets for the show on Thursday, May 22, and return first-class train travel from Liverpool to London. If you’re not lucky enough to win the tickets, you can see Liverpool’s Chelsea garden when it goes on show at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, between June 19 and 22.
