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. Love and romance will also be celebrated with a unique floral sculpture, “The Kiss of the Winter Swans”, that Devonshire Square will be hosting in its historical Western Courtyard from Tuesday 11th February to Valentine’s day. The sculpture has been conceived as a beautiful and imaginative representation of everlasting affection and loyalty, as swans are believed to mate for life. The original flower artwork - envisioned and designed by the Devonshire Square’s Events Team – will be created by flower-couturier Katie Sparrow by combining a variety of fresh flowers symbolising eternal love, sensuality, tenderness and true devotion, such as roses, cymbidium orchids and delicate gypsophila. The love-themed artistic installations are meant to raise awareness on the #nobrokenhearts fundraising campaign that Devonshire Square will be running on Valentine’s week (10th – 14th February) in aid of the British Heart Foundation; donations can also be made online by clicking on the following link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/no-brokenhearts . Visitors will be able to walk under the canopy of hearts, admire the romantic floral sculpture and treat their beloved ones to a scented bouquet of roses at the “Blooming Spot”, the pop-up flower stall that will be available in Devonshire Square’s Western Courtyard both on 13th and 14th February, from 9am to 7pm. 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.

From 5th to 13th December , Devonshire Square will be hosting the 6th Edition of its very own “Art for Love” Winter Festival, a 2-week programme of FREE attendance world-class artistic performances, organised and curated by the Devonshire Square Events Team with the aim of raising awareness on social causes through the power of the arts. This year’s programme includes performances by international musicians who will present repertoires ranging from classical to swing, and dance shows, both classical ballet and contemporary, executed by some of the finest professional dancers in UK. The festival’s opening day will celebrate the magical atmosphere of the festive season with a visually delighting showcase of performances and artworks dedicated to the fantasy world of fairy tales and The Golden Age of Children’s Literature. The collection of fairy tales ““The Blue fairy Book”, by Scottish novelist and poet Andrew Lang, will be the leitmotif of all performances and visual artworks that will be presented during the Festival’s inaugural event. To celebrate the inspirational power of the universal literary genre of the fairy tale on performing and visual arts, as well as on creative making, dancers and visual artists have been invited to imaginatively create unique choreographies, illustrations and artworks dedicated to the fantasy world of the folk and fairies that populate Lang’s narrative work.

On Thursday 5th December, from 1pm to 3pm, the historical Devonshire Square’s Western Courtyard will be hosting “Dreamy Tales of Sugar”, a stunningly imaginative sugar artwork, exclusively created for Devonshire Square’s “Art for Love” Winter Festival by Scottish sugar artist and pastry chef Jacqui Kelly, multi gold medal winning and Best in Show at Cake International 2014 London. Inspired by “The Blue Fairy Book” by Scottish novelist and poet Andrew Lang, the artwork celebrates the Classic Fairy Tales and The Golden Age of Children’s Literature, as well as the inspirational power of this universal literary genre on creative making. The 1-meter wide sugar artwork has been conceived by the artist as an enthralling three-dimensional composition of old-fashioned leather books, open to reveal their fairy tales within. Delicate figures with intense detailing around them, enrobed in edible gold and silverleaf, will be seen spilling out from the magical scenarios depicted on the exquisitely decorated books. The layers used to create Red Riding Hood trees have been hand-painted and hand cut on edible wafer paper and mint pastillage. Aladdin’s magic carpet has been pristinely decorated on vanilla bean meringues while Hansel & Gretel’s house is made of gingerbread encrusted with hand pulled sugar sweeties. Attendees will also be treated to a tasting experience of one of the pastry chef’s delicious confectionary preparations. “Dreamy Tales of Sugar” - a FREE attendance, family friendly event - is part of the Devonshire Square’s “Art for Love” Winter Festival 2019, organised and curated by the Devonshire Square’s Events Team to raise awareness and funds in aid of The Connection, London’s busiest homeless charity. The unique artwork will be set up by the Devonshire Square’s iconic Giving Tree and will be unveiled on the Festival’s opening day. The event will be marked by a mesmerizing dance choreography, “A Winter Fairy Tale”, presented by Royal Ballet trained ballerinas Crystalline, executed to music from Cinderella ballet.
