On March 1st, Marie Curie will unveil a field of daffodils in Paternoster Square.
Every year Paternoster Square plays host to Marie Curie’s stunning installation, the Garden of Light, and this year it will be made up of 4,000 handcrafted daffodils, all of which will illuminate at night.
There will also be a beautiful stained glass structure, as well as a trail of sculptural daffodils emerging from the flower beds, each designed by various artists and celebrities. Whilst you walk amongst the thousands of daffodils, you’ll hear letters from patient’s families being read, and you’ll also have the opportunity to leave behind messages/memories of your own lost loved ones.
The Garden of Light coincides with the launch of Marie Curie’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal – a moving tribute to the charity’s ongoing work caring for those living with terminal illnesses.
You’ll find the Garden of Light in Paternoster Square, home to St Paul’s Cathedral and the famous First Dates restaurant, between March 1 and March 11th.
