SquareMeal review of
Live at Chelsea
Usually a retirement home for war veterans, from 15-18 June the Royal Hospital Chelsea will instead be the venue for four spectacular shows, featuring performances from Belle & Sebastian, Ludovico Einaudi, plus a fireworks display. For those after a VIP experience, the State Apartments Dinner package will be hosted in the grand rooms designed by Sir Christopher Wren which used to host royalty and dignitaries. Following champagne and canapés on arrival, there’s a three-course meal, exclusive access to the state apartments during the performances, and a top-tier seat with the best views. Alternatively, the Quartermaster’s Barbecue package is a more casual affair – taking place on the scenic South Terrace, you’ll receive a cocktail on arrival, a two-course barbecue and a top-price seat to watch the show.
