The Live At Chelsea concert series 2016 kicks off with a bang, quite literally, as the opening evening features the inaugural Chelsea Fireworks Prom, soundtracked by the magnificent Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, at the home of the Chelsea Pensioners.

The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra has travelled around the world playing in some of the most renowned and prestigious venues since its formation in 1987. From Europe to China, North to South America, the RPCO is known internationally for eclectic programming of classical, light classical and popular music.

The RPCO has performed with everyone ranging from opera stars such as Andrea Bocelli, José Carreras and the late Luciano Pavarotti, to icons of popular culture such as Burt Bacharach, Barry Manilow, Stevie Wonder and Sting.

Against the stunning backdrop of the Grade I listed Royal Hospital Chelsea, the RPCO performs selections from its vast repertoire, including pieces by composers such as Elgar, Brahms, and Puccini, as well as pieces from closer to home such as The Dam Busters, Jerusalem, and Rule Britannia, kicking off summer in style.

Accompanying the music will be a spectacular fireworks show lighting up the grounds like never before!

Gates open: 17:30.

Please see for full event information.

As the only concert series staged at this beautiful venue, Live at Chelsea is hosted in a fully seated auditorium in the Royal Hospital Chelsea’s central courtyard – the Hospital itself was founded by King Charles II in 1682 and is home to the Chelsea Pensioners, 300 retired soldiers.

A portion of the ticket sale proceeds will also go towards funding care for the Chelsea Pensioners (retired soldiers) who live at The Royal Hospital, as well as helping to fund the ongoing maintenance of the Grade I listed site.
