Teachers’ open evening. Wednesday 20th June 2018, 4–6.30pm

This is a chance for you to visit Chelsea Physic Garden and see what we have on offer for nurseries, schools, colleges and home-schooled groups. Our Education team will be here to answer any questions and take you on a tour of this wonderful outdoor educational resource.

We have also invited 3 other educational institutions who will showcase their wonderful work and what they have on offer (see timetable below for info). You’ll have the chance to meet their experts and discuss possible trips.

The event is free, but there are limited spaces, so it is essential to book this so we can cater accordingly. If you have any questions about this, please email Michael Holland on [email protected] or call 020 7349 6453.
