Linklaters is delighted to be sponsoring a show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May 2017.

We have been working closely with our Chelsea gold medal-winning designer, Darren Hawkes, and our charity partners, Maggie’s cancer charity and Inspired Directions School.

A new Maggie’s Centre is being built at St Bartholomew’s Hospital near our London office and will provide a lasting legacy for the garden.

We also want you to take part and enjoy the garden. The following pages explain the project, why Linklaters is sponsoring a garden and the importance of the garden providing a lasting legacy.

We hope you will join us and follow the progress of the garden.
