On Saturday 21 April, from 12noon–6pm, Trafalgar Square will be transformed into a beautiful English garden in this free outdoor family festival celebrating St George’s Day.

The Mayor of London has teamed up with an award-winning horticulturalist to create a central London oasis that will see the square a-bloom for one day only.

Visitors will be able to enjoy pop-up gardening installations from Pimping Your Pavement and Mobile Gardeners, floral art by Flowers For All and Grow Your Own exhibits for the urban green-fingered from Sustain’s Capital Growth Programme. There’ll also be two show gardens – the Thames Water sponsored ’Beat the Ban‘ drought tolerant garden provided by the London Wildlife Trust and the Febreze Fresh Haven provided as part of the P&G Capital Clean Up, helping Londoners breathe happy.

An ornamental bandstand will feature English music hall classics alongside performances from up and coming musicians.

The colourful line-up will also include entertainers, English rose making origami, face painting and a garden treasure trail for children, plus horticultural talks from those in the know.
