Devonshire Square’s Easter Tree dedicated to The Honeypot Children’s Charity

16/04/2019: 5:00 PM

As Easter approaches, WeWork Devonshire Square will be marking the festivity by hosting a lustrously colourful Easter Tree in its iconic Avenue. The artistic installation was created by the Devonshire Square Events Team in 2015 with the aim of raising awareness and funds in support of The Honeypot Children’s Charity and has been on display annually ever since, during the Easter period. The Honeypot Children’s Charity is a UK based organisation that has been working since 1996 to enhance the lives of vulnerable children and young carers aged 5-12 years. Being the result of a collective project, the installation has been conceived as a visual hymn to childhood and symbolises the joyfulness, togetherness and light-heartedness of this season of life, that children from any background should be able to enjoy. The hundreds of real eggs that decorate the tree have been creatively hand-painted in naïve style through a range of painting techniques including water, oil and acrylic painting, along with natural dyes from red and yellow onion skins. This year’s installation promises to bring a vivid splash of colour to the historical campus as the whole community of WeWork Devonshire Square will be participating in the project by hosting daily artistic egg-painting workshops with the aim of painting 1000 eggs to decorate the tree. The workshops will take place from Wednesday 3rd to Friday 12th April, from 1pm to 3pm, on weekdays only and they are open to anyone. Everyone within the Devonshire Square’s community and all external visitors are warmly invited to join WeWork Devonshire Square in their #1000EggPaintedChallenge to raise awareness about the fantastic work that the Honeypot Children’s Charity does to offer both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children. Donations in aid of the charity can be made on line through the following link: http://www.honeypot.org.uk/donate-now/ and collection boxes will also be available on all Devonshire Square’s reception desks during the Easter period, from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5.30pm. The Easter Tree has been sponsored with contributions from DSQ based restaurants Old Bengal Bar, Fish Market, New Street Grill, New Street Wine Shop and Cinnamon Kitchen. The tree will be on display in Devonshire Square’s Avenue from Tuesday 16th to Tuesday 23rd April.

  • Love Christmas Festival

    This festive season Devonshire Square is teaming up with homeless charity The Connection to grant Christmas wishes and celebrate the spirit of giving. Taking central stage in Devonshire Square’s historic western courtyard will be a Christmas Wishing Tree entirely decorated with paper hearts on which handwritten wishes from those in need will be hanging. Visitors can read the wishes, and in the true spirit of Christmas, chose to honour them by writing “Honoured” on the hearts and pledging to make the wish come true. For each wish granted, a floating candle will be lit and released onto the beautiful Western Courtyard fountain during a special ceremony on 22nd December 2015. Gifts will then be delivered to The Connection Charity Centre on Christmas Day. The festivities will be celebrated in style surrounded by Devonshire Square’s iconic retailers. This will be supported by a month long programme of music from a talented array of bands, with performances by Abraxas Ensemble, Tenori, with tenors Alexander Grove, Nicholas Ransley and John Hudson, the Enchorus Gospel Choir, Joglaresa, the High Society Brass Band and Sammie Jay. All performances will take place at lunch time (12.30-1.30pm) in Devonshire Square Western Courtyard and are FREE attendance.

  • Celebrity Cruises invites passers-by to see #ADifferentView of their city

    Until November 21st, Celebrity Cruises UK is partnering with some of the UK’s most recognised names including adventurer Ben Fogle and wine aficionado Oz Clarke to curate a series of bespoke frames appearing in 20 iconic locations across the UK. Leading Instagrammers have also come on-board and have carefully selected a range of locations designed to break away from the usual tourist hotspots towards a different view of London including New River Walk, Islington, Clink Street, Southwark and also here in Devonshire Square! Each frame is exclusively created from materials such as grass to reflect Celebrity Cruises’ Lawn Club, a half-acre of real grass on the top deck of its 10 award-winning ships. Budding photographers and the general public are encouraged to capture their view and share them online using the hashtag #ADifferentView. These images will then be hosted on a microsite which will also automatically enter participants into a competition to win a 7-night Modern Luxury holiday for two to the Caribbean, alongside other exclusive experiences hosted by Celebrity ambassadors including Ben Fogle and Oz Clarke. The frame is located in the Central Courtyard so be sure to upload your pics and hashtag #ADifferentView!
