Live in the Square

To launch Grosvenor Britain & Irelands London Estates 2020 vision for Mayfair & Belgravia, We Are Placemaking curated a cultural program to establish Mayfair’s Grosvenor Square as a destination and change perceptions of the area. For the first time, Grosvenor regained management of Grosvenor Square from Royal Parks in Spring 2018 and wanted to mark this moment by hosting a step-change cultural event in the heart of Mayfair.
