EAT MUSIC DRINK ART
A concept which seems at odds, but is our favour, a philosophy that blurs sensory borders.

Drawing inspiration close to home, honouring London’s favourite horticultural event, sketch’s very own floricultural celebration of spring will be showing for a second year running from 17th to 29th May 2017.

sketch’s second flower show for Mayfair is set to fragment its grounds into allotments. Five canvases on which the exhibitors will install their gardens, exploring their personal relationship with 9 Conduit Street whilst showcasing their craft and passion for the British flora
