Goddesses in the Garden SOLD OUT

Wednesday 8 March 2023, 7pm - 9:30pm

Chelsea Physic Garden and The Crick Crack Club present ‘Goddesses in the Garden’.

Bountiful, malevolent, compassionate, bloodthirsty, and downright incendiary! These awe-inspiring mediators of creation, birth, death, dancing, and destruction are here – sorting it all out.

Like divining rods for deities, Crick Crack Club storytellers bring us a night of goddesses to celebrate International Women’s Day – be they good, bad, misconstrued, or simply not needing to be understood by us at all.

Join us for a dose of the divine. The Physic Garden Café will be serving drinks and light bites before the show.

This talk is part of our Chelsea Physic Garden’s 350 anniversary year.
