Marcus Barnett at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015

We are delighted to announce that Inchbald Graduate Marcus Barnett is creating a main avenue show garden at this year RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2015.

Marcus has designed a garden inspired by the De Stijl Movement. The garden reflects strong rectilinear geometry with coloured blocks contributing colour and textural relief, whether viewing from within or when viewed from above. Contrasting colours and tones surround a series of differing scaled waterways. Trees and hedges introduce vertical detailing, sculptural form and dappled shade.

Plants have been selected to provide harmonious tonal balance and textural contrast within rectilinear planting spaces. Vibrant primary colours and closely related tones used by the De Stijl Movement are emphasised, with restful and balancing foils of green and white.

Jeremy Musson’s Book Launch

Jacqueline Duncan yesterday joined a reception held at Christies to launch Jeremy Musson’s new book, The Drawing Room, against the background of a collection of fine English furniture shortly coming up for sale in Christies Rooms. The Lots going for auction included a magnificent striking long case adorned with mirror panels prompting conjecture as to who had commissioned it some two hundred and fifty years ago.

Christopher Vane Percy, one of the best Presidents of the BIIDA was also there with his daughters and it was a pleasure as always to see William Yeoward, shortly to depart for New Zealand for a holiday with his family. Meanwhile Inchbald is hurrying to buy the book for its library.

John Brookes’ talk at the Garden Museum

The Director of the Garden Museum, Christopher Woodward, arranged a special event at the Garden Museum in partnership with the Inchbald School of Design on the 29th October to celebrate John Brookes spectacularly successful and innovative career in Garden Design, on the eve of his 82nd birthday.

The event was introduced by Andrew Duff, Director of the Garden Design Faculty at Inchbald, an establishment with to which John has close connections going back some fifty years. Guests invited to review their knowledge of, and links with John’s work were Dr Barbara Simms Gold Medal winner Cleve West, and Jacqueline Duncan, Founder of the Inchbald.

John spoke about his past and current work and deprecatingly remarked that he had really said all he had to say about Garden Design over the years. Not true, we all thought, not true at all – he is still one of the greatest contributors to the contemporary garden and will remain so until he is past birthdays! So we will continue to look forward to hearing him talk with all the experience behind him and the acknowledged wisdom of one of our greatest garden designers.

The Designers’ Pantomime

The Designers’ Pantomime is again an unqualified success and looks fair to make a lot of money for the NSPCC.   All the participants have worked incredibly hard to produce a polished and amusing show;   Joanna Woods made the most elegant of Tinkerbelles and excelled in her balletic flypast, whilst Tim Gosling enthralled everyone with his dress sense to name but one aspect of his dazzling performance.

Inchbald Director Nicholas Springman demonstrated his exceptional voice, Inchbald graduate Hugh Poole Warren has discovered the secrets of spot lighting and applied them to his hat and darling Tessa Kennedy’s sexy voice was as wondrous as ever.

Thank you all for a wonderful evening.
