Belgravia in Bloom 2023
Belgravia in Bloom is partnering with conservation charity, London Wildlife Trust for their 2023 Floral Festival. This year’s theme is “Into the Wild” with the neighbourhood’s annual flower festival returning from 22nd to 29th May, and will celebrate the ‘Kings’ and ‘Queens’ of the Jungle in celebration of the Coronation and King Charles III’s love of conservation and the environment.
During the festival, the neighbourhood will become home to some of the world’s most beautiful and eclectic species, from pandas and peacocks to monkeys, tigers and snakes. In support of the London Wildlife Trust’s mission to boost biodiversity and inspire Londoners to connect with nature, Belgravia in Bloom will encourage visitors to celebrate and learn more about the creatures great and small through a series of unmissable pop ups, events and experiences.
The London Wildlife Trust is working with Belgravia in Bloom to ensure that the floral installations are created using even more biodiversity-boosting plants.
Matthew Frith, Director of Research and Policy at Wildlife Trust and guest judge on this year’s installation competition says: “At London Wildlife Trust we’re committed to inspiring people to engage with and stand up for nature, which is why we’re thrilled to further our long-term partnership with Grosvenor by collaborating on this year’s Belgravia in Bloom. From the flowers used to create the magnificent floral installations, to the eclectic diversity of animals they represent, this year’s wilderness theme encourages visitors to celebrate the wonder of nature and the work to protect the places where it lives.”
Visitors can check out the show-stopping family of peacocks on Motocomb Street, Moyses Stevens’ playful floral jeep and Judith Blacklock’s tunnel of exotic orchids.
Throughout the festival, Belgravia’s leading florists and delightful shops and restaurants will also come together to create and host a series of unmissable floral themed events, offers and experiences, including ‘Into the Wild’ themed floral products, menus and cocktails.
