A field of 20,000 glowing white roses takes up residence in Mayfair again this winter.

Grosvenor Square is home to the Ever After Garden, an illuminated installation designed as a garden of remembrance. This is a charity event, raising money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity via donations and dedications, and offering people somewhere to pause and reflect on absent friends and family as the festive season begins.

The first Ever After Garden was created in memory of production designer and art director Michael Howells by his friends, fashion creatives Anya Hindmarch, CBE and Camilla Morton.

Anyone can dedicate a rose in memory of a loved one, for a minimum donation of £10 per rose. The first Ever After Garden was installed in winter 2019, and it returned again in 2021. So far it's raised £250,000 for charity.
