  • Devonshire Square's Giving Tree

    Even though Devonshire Square’s highly expected “Art for Love Festival” and “Soul Royalty Winter Festival” will not take place this December due to Covid-19, Devonshire Square’s iconic Giving Tree will still be taking central stage in the historical Western Courtyard, to celebrate the spirit of giving and bring communities together. Devonshire Square’s Giving Tree is a unique Christmas tree entirely adorned with paper hearts on which wishes expressed by homeless people supported by The Connection Charity have been transcribed, in order to give them a chance to be read and honoured by visitors. Created by the Devonshire Square Events Team in December 2015, the Giving Tree has helped hundreds of homeless people to receive a thoughtfully made gift for Christmas. The illumination of the Giving Tree has traditionally marked the beginning of Devonshire Square’s Winter festivals, organised annually to support social causes through the power of the arts. This year, even if current circumstances have not allowed our festivals to take place, we are committed to continue supporting The Connection charity to help vulnerable people, whose challenging living conditions have even worsened due to the Covid-19 health emergency. This year, to express gratitude towards the NHS for the unvaluable help that they have been providing to the nation during the pandemic, the Giving Tree will be exceptionally decorated with blue paper hearts, instead of the red ones featured on the previous editions. The Giving Tree will be on display in the Western Courtyard from 6th December till 8th January 2021.

    Devonshire Square will be marking the most romantic day of the year by decorating its iconic Avenue with an artistic installation of 250 heart-shaped balloons in ruby red, hot magenta and golden pink nuances, colours that symbolise passion, love, romance and friendship.

Lovers and romantics can continue their evening in one of Devonshire Square’s renowned restaurants, all serving an assorted selection of Valentine’s themed dishes, cocktails and menus.
