On 29-30th April, Flat Iron Square will host a weekend of Royal Horticultural Society inspired stalls, talks and activities, encouraging everyone, whether you’re small or tall, own a window box or a garden, to get involved in gardening. Guests are invited to peruse the gardening inspired stalls, full to the brim with plants, trendy succulents and flowers. Regular Flea traders, inspired by the RHS, will be stoked with vintage plant pots and furniture, as well as vintage clothing, jewellery and ceramics.

Famed Garden Designer and RHS judge James Alexander Sinclair will be running the RHS entertainment stage and helping budding urban gardeners with ideas and advice for their indoor plants, allotments and London gardens. Other talks across the weekend include innovative urban garden designers Cityscapes, South London Gardener Patrick Featherstone, alongside interactive cooking demonstrations, workshops and live music.

Tune in to talks on urban gardening from RHS experts, get crafty with free workshops, from floral crown making, to pressed flower decoration and learning how to take cuttings, and get your culinary tips at cooking talks and demonstrations from Flat Iron Square’s wonderful food residents. Or simply sit back and enjoy the delicious food and drink on offer, from Bittenclub's fresh Bánh Mì to seasonal pizzas from Baz & Fred, Thai dishes from Ekachai, Cantina Carnitas' lipsmackingly fresh burritos or Eastern Mediterranean street food from Laffa.

Opening Times 11am – 9pm Saturday 29th April and 10am-5pm Sunday 30th April. Free entry.
