“Few would venture to Chelsea, unarmed and unattended.” So wrote Charles Dickens in his 1841 novel Barnaby Rudge. It was certainly a different time, but the bohemian feel and reasonable rents (because of the prevalence of highwaymen) attracted huge numbers of writers and musicians to Chelsea.

Tonight, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by stars from the screen and stage Dame Harriet Walter and Adjoa Andoh for a celebration of the unique surroundings of Cadogan Hall. Hear words written in and about Chelsea from authors including A.A. Milne, Jane Austen, J.R.R. Tolkien and Oscar Wilde, alongside a selection of music from George Frideric Handel, Joseph Haydn, Florence Price, Maurice Ravel, Ralph Vaughan Williams and more...

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Helena Bonham Carter is unable to perform as previously advertised. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
