It is with a heavy heart that we are postponing this exclusive event to later this year, as a result of the RHS cancelling the Chelsea Flower Show, alongside all the RHS events being held prior to 30th June.

All tickets will be valid for the new date, which will be announced in due course, and we hope to see all of you there.

Your support for this event so far has been inspiring, and we are looking forward to having you join us for a truly wonderful occasion in the autumn. If you have any questions, please contact our office by emailing or call 01722 326834.

Thank you again for your support, it means a huge amount to everyone involved with and benefitting from the charity’s work.

Event Description

Horatio’s Garden are holding a unique and exclusive Chelsea Preview Lunch at The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences in Mayfair on Monday 11th May from 12pm.

*** Tickets cost £150. To enquire, please email or call 01722 326834. ***



This is a one-of-a-kind event and an unsurpassed opportunity for guests to gain an extraordinary glimpse into the world-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show. A host of award-winning garden designers will be joining us, including RHS Chair of Judges, James Alexander-Sinclair, creator of this year’s Nepalese garden, Jonathan Snow and eight-time Chelsea gold medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith. Everyone will gather for an award-winning, two course lunch in The Galvin, brought to The Athenaeum by Michelin Starred chefs Chris & Jeff Galvin, where our special guests will each share their Chelsea stories and offer you their expert insights on what to look out for at this year’s show. 

Fittingly, The Athenaeum is home to London’s ‘Living Wall’, which was designed by remarkable French artist and botanist Patrick Blanc. The garden begins at street level and reaches all the way to the 10th floor, which is not only a nod to the beauty of the natural world, but also an important haven of biodiversity in the heart of London. Furthermore, this year The Athenaeum will be welcoming a brand new, contemporary green installation celebrating the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which is being created by incredible landscape architect Adam Shepherd.

This truly is an unmissable event.
