27,000 Illuminated White Roses Will Light Up Grosvenor Square This Winter

An Ever After Garden filled with thousands of glowing roses opens in Mayfair this Christmas.

Grosvenor Square is taken over with the illuminated flowers from 30 November, all for a good cause. Visitors can 'plant' a silk rose in memory of a loved one, and the garden is intended as somewhere for Londoners to remember absent friends and family this Christmas.

It's free to visit the Ever After Garden, and if you wish to purchase a rose in memory of someone, the suggested donation of £10 goes to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. A total of 27,000 glowing roses will fill the square, and the display is the work of Culture Creative, the team behind the fantastic Christmas At Kew light trail.

Fashion designers Anya Hindmarch and Camilla Morton came up for the idea for the garden, when they were looking for a  a way to commemorate their late friend, production designer Michael Howells. He worked on the film Ever After, which is how the garden got its name.

The Ever After Garden is open in Grosvenor Square, 30 November-22 December 2019, 12pm-8pm daily. Entry is free.
