Designer Fiona Leahy is behind the show-stopping tree at White City’s Television Centre, her first Christmas tree instillation.

Meanwhile, the scarlet bows sit amid an array of twinkly LED lights, brightening up White City and paying homage to the showbiz legacy of  Television Centre.

Dior Claridges Christmas tree

Claridge’s

This year, landmark London hotel Claridge’s has teamed up with designer Kim Jones, artistic director of the men’s collections at Dior, to create ‘The Celestial Snow Globe’.

Promising to be the ‘most fun Christmas tree you’ve ever seen’, artist Ed Curtis is in charge of The London Edition’s Christmas tree this year, in partnership with fundraising organisation CHOOSE LOVE.

The Connaught

The Connaught has unveiled its 2021 Christmas tree, created in collaboration with long-time friends of the hotel, London-based artist duo Annie Morris and Idris Khan OBE. Morris’ precarious tower sculptures, which embody the increased uncertainty that has come to define our lives, are juxtaposed with Khan’s particular focus on strength in community through the base of the tree.
