To celebrate the festive season, Grosvenor Square has once again transformed into the Ever After Garden: a beautiful space filled with a sea of illuminated white roses. Visitors can dedicate pre-planted roses to loved ones they have lost – and the cost of each rose will help to raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
Designed by Anya Hindmarch and Camilla Morton, in memory of their friend and top Production Designer Michael Howells, the Ever After Garden first appeared in 2019 as a stunning and peaceful way to commemorate the people we have lost. The installation has been developed by Culture Creative, the same award-winning design team behind Christmas at Kew Gardens.
After a year away in 2020, due to the national lockdown, the Ever After Garden has returned to Grosvenor Square for 2021. Over 25,000 flowing roses now fill the space, each holding their own story and dedication to a loved one. From December 1-23, the beautiful sight will casts its warming glow through central London once more.
Entrance to the garden is free for all – and if you’d like to contribute to the installation by adding a personal dedication to one of the illuminated, white silk roses in honour of a loved one, they suggest a donation of £10.
Find the installation between December 1-23 at Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, W1K 2HP.
