This weekend, a field of glowing roses will come to central London, and it’s a charity fund raiser for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. Over the next few weeks, Grosvenor Square in Mayfair will fill with illuminated roses, which are intended to be planted in memory of a loved one.

Visitors will be invited to help raise funds for The Royal Marsden by purchasing a white rose from one of their chalets in Grosvenor Square for a suggested donation of £10 each. Purchased roses can then be planted in the garden where they will illuminate.

Named the Ever After Garden, the installation was inspired and in memory of the late Production Designer and Art Director, Michael Howells, who designed the film Ever After, starring Drew Barrymore.

All funds raised from sales of roses will be donated to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which supports the work of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.

The Ever After Garden opens on 30th November until 22nd December, and from noon  to 8pm. Entrance is free.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
