About Live At Chelsea

The Live At Chelsea Concert Series returns for its 5th year in 2019, having established itself firmly as a welcome fixture in the summer calendar for many. This is in no small part due to the eclectic range of artists who have been featured previously, including Rufus Wainwright, Simply Red, Ludovico Einaudi, Belle & Sebastian, and the Kaiser Chiefs, amongst many more. As well as this, the warm welcome to audiences from the Chelsea Pensioners themselves into their home of the immaculate grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.
