Inspired by the Indian artwork of Rangoli, where patterns are created using colourful powder, Canary Wharf Group has commissioned Richard Bragg from RB Floral Design to create a number of illuminated flower installations, which will float in the water features of Jubilee Park for a week.

The free-to-visit floating flower installations will be in place from Monday 9 November until Sunday 15 November and careful steps have been taken to ensure the installation can be enjoyed outdoors in a Covid-secure manner.
