Oriental Silk Arts & Craft Exhibition
1/06/2018 - 3/06/2018 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
From Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd June, Devonshire Square will be hosting in its historical Western Courtyard an exclusive Oriental Silk Arts & Craft Exhibition organised in partnership with P&Y International Services Solutions Ltd.
Visitors will have the chance to admire a wide range of some of the finest handcrafted silk products created by using the most traditional textile techniques dating back to the Song dynasty.
A collection of fine crewel embroidery artworks by award winning artist Qian Liping will also be on show.
The display will include the replica of the precious dark blue ceremonial robe belonging to Empress Wu (1115-1197), decorated with depictions of paired pheasant and bordered with red gauze featuring dragon patterns.
The exhibition is meant to represent a retrospective journey from the traditional garments designs typical of the Song dynasty to the contemporary creations inspired by the imperial style, showcased during the China Fashion Week’s shows last February.
The replicas of some of the national giftsets offered by the Chinese State to the world leaders during their official state visits to China will also be on display.
The event is free attendance and registration is not required.

8 December: 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
On Saturday 8th December, from 5pm to 10pm, WeWork's Devonshire Square will be proudly launching the first edition of its very own Soul Royalty Winter Festival, a soul music live concert that will see the participation of international touring artist Zalon and his guests Jodie Abacus, Leonn, Stephanie Sounds, Gavin Holligan and Teshay Makeda, some of the finest soul, funk and R&B artists in London. The event, organised by Devonshire Square in partnership with Zalon, aims at raising awareness and funds in support of The Connection, London’s busiest homeless charity, to which Devonshire Square has also dedicated all six editions of its “Art for Love” Festival. Zalon, whose career highlights include a six-year collaboration with Amy Winehouse during her “Back to Black” tour, has enthusiastically accepted Devonshire Square’s invitation to perform in their historical Western Courtyard for the 3rd time, using his vocal talent in support of an urgent cause. On the day of the event, donation boxes will be available on site and attendees will also be able to pay a visit to Devonshire Square’s Giving Tree, a unique Christmas tree entirely adorned with red paper hearts on which wishes of those in need have been carefully transcribed, in order to give them a chance to be read and honoured by visitors. All collected gifts and donations will be delivered to The Connection charity on Christmas’ eve. The Giving Tree, created by the Devonshire Square Events Team in 2015, has helped hundreds of homeless people supported by The Connection Charity to receive a thoughtfully made gift for Christmas. Devonshire Square would like to warmly thank Zalon, his guests and everyone who will be joining them in supporting this fantastic appeal. The event is FREE attendance, however, registration via Eventbrite is required.
