Exclusive Alfred Munnings Exhibition Discount

This January, receive an exclusive 50% discount for Alfred Munnings: War Artist, 1918 at the National Army Museum.

The National Army Museum is inviting InChelsea readers to enjoy 50% off adult tickets to their special exhibition this January: a collection of over 40 First World War paintings by the renowned equine artist, Sir Alfred Munnings, displayed together for the first time in a century.

As an official war artist with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War, Alfred Munnings painted equine subjects, portraiture and pastoral landscapes, capturing his time with the Canadian Cavalry Brigade and the Forestry Corps in 1918. Impressionist in style, Munnings’ vibrant brushstrokes capture the beauty of horses in the war-affected landscapes of France. Often painting less than a mile from the front line, and in full view of the enemy, he shows war horses on the march, at the charge, at work and at rest. These canvases demonstrate both the important role of mounted troops on the Western Front and the vital work behind the lines that sustained the war effort.

To receive the offer, simply quote INCHELSEA at the Museum’s ticket desk to enjoy £3 adult tickets (instead of £6). Valid on tickets up to and including 31 January 2019.

Terms and Conditions:

50% discount valid on full price adult ticket. Not available in conjunction with an other offer. This discount cannot be used to book advanced tickets. Last admission to the  exhibition is one hour before the Museum closes. There is no readmissions to the exhibition. Offer is subject to availability. Offer for valid for use in January 2019. a

Alfred Munnings: War Artist, 1918 runs until 3 March 2019 at the National Army Museum, Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea.

Ticket prices: Adults £6, Concessions £5, Students £4, Groups £4, Under 16s and Serving Army personnel free.

The exhibition has been developed by the Canadian War Museum (Ottawa, Canada) in partnership with The Munnings Art Museum (Dedham, UK) and generously sponsored by The Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation. Local support kindly provided by Juddmonte.

Veganuary

For those who’ve committed to Veganuary or merely fancy dipping their toe into the world of veganism, Chelsea should be your first port of call on the Vegan trail with a number of restaurants offering extensive vegan options. There will be no need to pick at a plate of limp lettuce or fearing the forgoing of your weekend bacon sarnie; here are some of our top suggestions for your health fix and happy tummys.

Wulf and Lamb on Pavilion Road is becoming widely known as a vegan hub. Tuck into comfort classics (vegan of course) as we hit the coldest months of the year. Expect creamy linguine and a mac ‘n’ cheese to die for, and craving a burger? Well you can get that too – the Wulf Burger, a seitan burger topped with tomato, baby gem, pickle, red onion and cashew aioli in a brioche bun. Get ready for the latest menu additions coming on 7 January too, pizzas!

The Good Life, just up on Sloane Avenue, is a haven for the healthy (or those trying to be). The menu offers breakfast all day long as well more substantial meals, including chestnut and almond waffles with coconut yogurt, berry and chia compote with a banana mash and a hillbilly chilli; a three bean chipotle chilli with coconut yogurt, chives and roasted sweet potato accompanied with quinoa or brown rice. Not only that but the fridges are filled with delicious juices for those on a detox and the sweet treats to take-away are enormously popular.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden is also a must-visit with a year-round vegan menu, offering vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options for the health-conscious. The warm Asian salad is a plate of colour and exciting flavours; watermelon, pak choi, broccoli, cashew nuts, sesame, coriander and a hoisin sauce and we hear the roasted butternut squash and grains should be your main of choice.

Tucked away on Ellis Street is Raw Press. Once discovered, vegans and wannabe vegans will return time and time again. There is an extensive menu of juices, smoothies and acai bowls and a revolving menu of different salads for lunches when you’re craving some colour and vitamins this January. For something a little naughtier, try the ‘Forbidden rice bowl’ or the nachos which come with a cashew ‘sour cream’, pumpkin ‘cheese’, guacamole and a salsa. Healthy has never been so indulgent… or easy!

Chelsea Awards

Chelsea is blessed to enjoy some of the best shops, restaurants and cultural experiences in London and across the globe. These experiences don’t come without someone or a whole team putting in the effort, often unearthed behind the scenes who make it a wonderful place to work, live or visit. It is now time to nominate your heroes; to honour the hard work and creativity that goes into making Chelsea a world-class destination. To celebrate these people, teams and organisations, the awards will be presented at an event in Spring 2019.

To ensure the awards reflect the local opinion, we are actively seeking entries and nominations from everyone in the community. The eventual winners will be decided from all the entries by a panel of six independent judges representing different parts of the community who are recognised for their success, expertise and knowledge of Chelsea.

During the months leading up to the awards ceremony, we will be sharing stories of our interesting nominees for a taste of why they are so special to the neighbourhood. More information on how to vote online will come shortly, however, in the meantime if you know of a business, team or individual who makes Chelsea the special place it is, please email celebratechelsea@pubbiz.com

Where to celebrate World Chocolate Day

7th July brings one of the happiest days of the year, World Chocolate Day. Chocolate is known for releasing endorphins, so feel no guilt as you indulge on this special day. Make sure you explore Chelsea to see what sweet treats you can find.

Salted Caramels, Artisan du Chocoalt

 

Sample chocolates of every flavour at Artisan du Chocolat on Lower Sloane Street. This institution is a haven for those with a sweet-tooth where you can spoil yourself with the most luxurious chocolate sweets from ‘milk salted caramel honeycomb’ and ‘pistachio pearls’ to ‘Rosé & Strawberry Truffles’ which must all obviously be consumed in mass.

Belgian Chocolate Brownies, Bread Ahead

 

As you wonder the artisan street, grab a tea-time treat from Bread Ahead. Their chocolate brownies are so indulgent and moreish, you sure to be back the next day… and the next!

Sloane’s Dark Chocolate Fondant with Cherry Sorbet, Hans’ Bar & Grill

 

The latest restaurant on Pavilion Road is Hans’ Bar & Grill and it’s namesake is Sir Hans Sloane, the man credited with bringing the Cadbury’s drinking chocolate recipe we know and love today to the UK.  Enjoy a feast of fine cuisine, but make sure you save room for when the desert menu appears which will have you swooning as you catch sight of the chocolate puddings on offer. The salted caramel cheesecake pot with vanilla ice cream will have your tastebuds dancing with delight and the dark chocolate fondant with cherry sorbet is the most exquisite end to a fantastic meal.

Make Your Own Magnum, Magnum Pleasure Store

 

Do not miss the Magnum Pleasure Store on Duke of York Square this summer; the ultimate destination for those who prefer their life on the sweet side.
