The B&Q garden, which will offer some greenery in the middle of central London from 26-29 April, invites guests to sample freshly cooked barbecue food and botanical-inspired drinks served from the brand’s gin shed. The pop-up aims to offer Londoners a space to relax, enjoy and be entertained.
Visitors can read or relax on B&Q’s latest range of outdoor furniture amongst a collection of plants, flowers and shrubs. There will also be a selfie wall constructed entirely of flowers for guests to enjoy and snap photos for their social media channels.
The garden will also host daily workshops led by B&Q experts on how to transform spaces of any size into a green, wildlife-friendly sanctuary with little effort and minimal cost. In addition, Barbecue cook and YouTuber, DJ BBQ, will be stopping by on 29 April, treating guests to his grilling and DJ-ing skills on the latest B&Q barbecues.
Guests can attend the garden for free at its location in central London’s Soho Square.
Last month, B&Q marked the opening of its first high street store with a 3D illusion on London’s Holloway Road.
