The Live At Chelsea Concert Series will return for its sixth year in 2022, becoming a regular summer fixture for many music fans.

Previous artists have included Toto, Jeff Beck, Ludovico Einaudi, Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Jones, and many more.

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 to ex-military personnel since 1682.
