Garden of Light at Paternoster Square – Thursday 1 March to Sunday 11 March

Paternoster Square is turning yellow again as 4,000 illuminated daffodils pop-up in the space to mark the Great Daffodil Appeal 2018. Each handcrafted flower will represent the people the terminal illness charity will support throughout the month of March. 

The flowers and a series of beautiful stained-glass walls will be illuminated at night to symbolise the work Marie Curie Nurses and hospices make to those who are affected by terminal illness, and their families. 

Walk through the flowers and listen to letters from patient’s families describing the care and support their relatives received from Marie Curie Nurses, make a donation in return for a daffodil pin in support of the Great Daffodil Appeal and leave behind a memory of a lost loved one by writing a message on a daffodil and placing on a ‘Memory Wall’ by the installation.

David Milne: Modern Painting at Dulwich Picture Gallery on now and until 7 May
Dulwich Picture Gallery presents the first major UK exhibition of one of Canada’s greatest modern painters, David Milne, bringing together 90 oil paintings and watercolours alongside drawings and photographs never shown before in the UK, to reveal an artist of true originality and vision. Through periods of intense experimentation, often working in solitude in the wild, Milne developed an extraordinary body of landscapes, fusing influences from Monet, Matisse and Cezanne into a bold modernist language of his own.
