The first details of the The Prince of Wales’s ‘A Garden Party to Make a Difference’, were announced recently and today B&Q, one of the partners of the event, announces its intention to help green up the nation through a series of innovative installations to inspire, engage and make it easier for us all to start to live a more sustainable life.

This unique Festival takes place in the gardens of London’s Lancaster House, Clarence House (the London residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall) and Marlborough House from 8-19 September, from 10am-6pm daily.

In order to help make it easier for visitors to understand more about sustainable living B&Q has created a number of fun interactive installations to help bring to life some of things we can all do to live a greener life.
