Let feathered paths and neon lights guide you through an Elton John fantasy at this glittery Grounds installation
There are icons and then there are icons who inspire neon-lit, multi-roomed, full-blown installations in their honour.
The Grounds isn’t one to shy away from high-key extravagance, but you certainly get a sense that the design masterminds behind this Elton John-themed pop-up spectacular really let their creativity loose with this one.
To mark the final shows of Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, this vibrant set-up channels the same OTT style as the music legend himself. Metallic tinsel drapes from archways, gigantic multi-coloured feathers fan out at every turn, and the centrepiece is a fully functional bright red piano just begging for your rendition of 'Tiny Dancer'.
Make sure, too, to get stuck into the desserts on offer – themed, of course. 'Piano Man', 'Super Star' and 'Rocket Man' cookies are good for a sweet pick-me-up, and there's also a dreamy 'Tiny Dancer' cake with vanilla sponge, yellow plum confit and rich vanilla cream. The installation is open now until Sunday, March 22, so be sure to live out your wildest 'Rocket Man' fantasies while it's still standing.
