Live at Chelsea 2018 highlights

18th June 2018

The Royal Hospital Chelsea was delighted to welcome back the ever popular concert series – Live At Chelsea – for another year of top quality music and entertainment, spread over four nights in the beautiful surroundings of Figure Court and the South Grounds. As always, the Chelsea Pensioners enjoyed opening their doors to members of the public, interacting with fans and artists throughout the event. Headline acts this year included The Kaiser Chiefs, Jeff Beck and James Blunt, as well as a musical celebration of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s work as part of his ongoing 70th birthday celebrations.

Chelsea Pensioners Paul and John had a wonderful time backstage across all four nights, with Paul also charged with the nerve-racking task of introducing the main acts each evening.
