The Royal Parks Foundation is to replace its traditional green-and-white-striped deckchairs with copies of 24 celebrity-designed chairs from 10 July.
The project, promoted by The Forster Company, aims to raise awareness of the charity’s work in managing eight of London’s parks. A campaign will position the parks as ‘breathing space for Londoners’, and the public will be encouraged to buy chairs as part of a fundraising drive.
Chef Fergus Henderson’s chair includes a recipe for ‘deep-fried squirrel’. Chair hire costs £1.50 for two hours.
