Cherry Blossom Season

You may have marvelled at the pretty pink confetti fluttering over the streets during the short-lived Cherry Blossom season that descends upon the city every spring but we don’t celebrate it quite like Japan. ‘Hanami’ is their annual festival of frolicking and picnicking under the blooms and to usher in the festivities, Charing Cross ice-cream parlour Gino Gelato have invited ‘Masterchef’ contestant Aki Matsushima and gelato guru Palmiro Bruschi to create ten Japanese-themed gelati and sorbetti for the start of the season on March 18 (2-6pm). There will be free samples and chances to chat to the chefs.

For info, see Japan Gelato Day.
