Following the success of Covent Garden in Bloom 2017, we would like to invite you to Covent Garden in Bloom 2018 from 19th May until 24th June, as we put the garden back in Covent Garden!
Covent Garden, the oldest square in London and Westminster Abbey’s original orchard garden, is returning to its historic past and will be blooming in to the Great British Summertime. To celebrate ‘Covent Garden in Bloom’ shops and restaurants across Covent Garden will blossom with botanical window and store displays and exclusive in store experiences unique to Covent Garden.
There will be floral dishes, botanical cocktails, blooming beauty products and of course, stunning floral displays from the shops and restaurants in the area.
From flower arranging workshops at Petersham Nurseries to floral-crown-making at Jo Malone London, Covent Garden will be blooming with floral-themed in-store events and experiences this Covent Garden in Bloom. Stay tuned for more information on all the latest events and how to book your place.
Enjoy floral inspired cocktails
Tempt your taste buds with a 'Pink Elephant' or 'FLOWERBX Fizz' and discover botanical cocktails from the likes of Frenchie and Balthazar.
From a very floral afternoon tea at Balthazar to edible flowers at Avobar and Abuelo, you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing where to dine (and Instagram your dish!) this Covent Garden in Bloom.
Visit our Chelsea Fringe garden
This year, Covent Garden will be supporting Chelsea Fringe; working closely with Gavin Jones and the Perennial Charity to create 'Moments of Reflection', a conceptual floral installation that will be on display in the East Piazza from 19th – 27th May.
The Fringe is entirely independent of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and is all about harnessing and spreading some of the excitement and energy that fizzes around gardens and gardening. The idea is to give people the freedom and opportunity to express themselves through the medium of plants and gardens to open up possibilities and to allow full participation.
