Connaught Village is feeling the love.

Love is in the air ahead of Valentine’s Day – and quite literally so in Marylebone. To welcome the arrival of Valentine’s Day, and brighten up the darkness of a winter lockdown, Connaught Village have unveiled a new light installation called ‘A Tree of Love, Joy, and Hope’, and we reckon it’s pretty gorgeous.

The new artwork sees a huge tree on the corner of Kendal Street and Connaught Street filled with pink and red neon hearts, shining strongly in the dark of a February night. It’s hoped that the installation can bring a smile to the face of local shoppers, and with the tree lying on a route to Hyde Park, it’ll give Londoners out for a stroll a welcome treat, too.

The installation is also a canny PR move, allowing Connaught Village to show off the range of Valentine’s activations in local shop. For instance, you and your beau can pick up wine from Connaught Cellars, sort out a cheeseboard from Buchanan’s, and fill your flat with flowers from PM Flowers.
