Christmas tree’s galore.

The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair has commissioned Damien Hirst to decorate their first Christmas tree

Hirst said: “The Christmas tree is a celebration of togetherness, a joyful symbol of hope and love. For the decorations, I wanted to reference some of the amazing things that give us hope in the world today.”

Hotel co-owner Paddy McKillen commented: “We were thrilled that Damien jumped to the challenge to create our first Connaught Christmas tree. I really hope it will be enjoyed by our guests, our Mayfair neighbours and the whole of London.”
