Taking place from Thursday 16 to Monday 27 May, the show celebrates London’s season of fabulous blooms with floral installations and special menus.
Leading florists have come together to showcase a series of immersive gardens transforming the entirety of No.9 Conduit Street, making the former Dior atelier a spectacular oasis of colour and scent.
The florists have been given complete ‘carte blanche’ to present one of the most glorious floral displays outside of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Six floral installations include pieces by Belgian florist Thierry Boutemy and London florists Rebel Rebel, Jam Jar, Figa & Co, Carly Rogers, Tony Marklew and Ricky Paul.
In addition to the stunning displays in each room, a range of menus offering botanical-inspired dishes and drinks will enhance the unique spectacle. Choose from a set lunch menu featuring wild and seasonal ingredients in the two-Michelin starred Lecture Room and Library, or a special floral makeover for Sketch’s acclaimed afternoon tea in The Gallery. The botanical themed cakes and pastries will include an Elderflower and Lemon Tart alongside a Rose Flower Religieuse.
The Mayfair Flower Show is inspired by Sketch owner Mourad Mazouz, who recently relaunched Momo on Heddon Street, and French Masterchef Pierre Gagnaire. The duo wanted to revive the eighteenth-century tradition of a May-time fair in Westminster – referencing when the area was an open field of woodlands, glades and meadows where locals would celebrate the beginning of spring.
A series of events and creative workshops will also be held at Sketch throughout the duration of the show including a floral workshop with Jam Jar flowers and a breakfast in The Glade with Rakes progress.
