Hosted over two nights, from 30 November to 1 December, the brand will open the doors to ProVision Studios in Hoxton, giving Londoners a free welcome escape from the chilly winter evening and a fun-filled experience aimed at beating the winter blues. 

Visitors will be transported to a fully-immersive summer garden party, complete with an abundance of flowers and greenery, cocktail bar, candlelit picnic area and jewel-toned exotic lounge space, all aimed at contrasting with the cold and dark London winter. 

The garden will offer night-time entertainment with reality star Ashley James who will be DJing on the opening evening and celebrity guests due to attend include presenter and Snapchat star Poppy Jamie and Made in Chelsea star and designer, Rosie Fortescue.

A selection of summer cocktails, concept canapes and ice cream will be available to all visitors, who will also be able to unlock an array of secret prizes to be won on the night.

A spokesperson for HomeSense said: "We want to create a unique space for members of the public to discover, experience and enjoy. At HomeSense we are all about offering our customers thrilling experiences and unique finds when shopping and thats exactly what you can expect to find in our secret garden".

Last year, Homesense positioned a giant green-coloured armchair within Maidenhead Bishop Centre to celebrate the opening of its new Taplow store.
