Grosvenor Square will be lit up by 25,000 glowing roses during December, raising money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The Ever After Garden is a garden of remembrance, which first appeared in Mayfair in 2019 as somewhere for Londoners to remember absent loved ones in the run-up to Christmas. Thousands of white glowing roses are planted in the square, which is open to all.

Anyone can dedicate a rose to a loved one, for a minimum donation of £10 to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which supports the Royal Marsden's care of cancer patients and research into new treatments.

The Ever After Garden came about after the death of production designer Michael Howells, when his friends writer Camilla Morton and Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Trustee and fashion designer Anya Hindmarch, wanted to find a way to pay tribute to lost loved ones.

The Ever After Garden is in Grosvenor Square, 1-23 December 2021, 12pm-8pm (though best viewed after dark). It's free to visit, but consider making a donation to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Follow @everaftergarden on Instagram.
