This festive season, aqua shard is launching its annual Christmas tree in collaboration with world-renowned multi-sensory design studio, Bompas & Parr. Together they have created ‘Snowscape at aqua shard’ which takes inspiration from an ornamental snow globe and The Shard’s distinguishable angular shape to create the tree with swirling snow inside. Bringing the outside in, ‘Snowscape at aqua shard’ will be adorned with wild, frosty branches reaching up through the atrium, and surrounded with a base of natural forest foliage as though transported in from a winter woodland. You will also be able to interact with Snowscape, by reaching inside the structure to catch a golden snowflake and be entered to win a cocktail or a private dining experience. Two ‘Golden Hours’ will give guests the chance to catch a golden snowflake, and will run at 11.30am - 12.30pm and 5pm - 6pm Monday to Friday.
Aqua shard has also created a bespoke ‘Snowscape’ cocktail and dessert to be sold throughout November and December. The dessert is a rum and coconut parfait, with a delicate white chocolate sphere with white chocolate powder, mimicking the snowflakes inside the tree. The cocktail will be served inside a snow globe, and will be a cool mix of Plantation 3* rum, homemade coconut cordial and Becherovka liqueur.
