See Grosvenor Square dramatically transformed with more than 20,000 illuminated white roses this festive season to commemorate loved ones while raising money for charity.

Returning for the third year, the Ever After Garden at Mayfair’s Grosvenor Square is being filled with the white silk roses from 23 November to 20 December.

Illuminated white roses

Visitors are invited to dedicate a rose in memory of a loved one help raise funds for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The idea of the Ever After Garden was conceived by designer Anya Hindmarch and fashion writer Camilla Morton after the loss of their friend Michael Howells, a famous production designer. The pair wanted to find an inspiring way to remember those we have lost.

Since its launch in 2019, the garden has raised more than £250,000 for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Open from 3pm to 9pm seven days a week from 23 November to 20 December, entrance to the Ever After Garden is free.

There is a suggested minimum £10 donation for anyone wishing to honour a loved one by adding a personal dedication to one of the illuminated roses. Dedications can be handwritten in person or submitted online. Find out more about how to make a donation.

Grosvenor Square is a five-minute walk from Bond Street and Marble Arch tube stations.
