Save the date: Christmas Lights Switch-On

Now the nights are longer and days a bit chillier, Christmas will very soon be at the forefront of our minds. Can you believe another year has flown by already?

With the speed in which winter plans are made and diaries are filled up in mind, make sure you save the date for the Chelsea Christmas Lights Switch-On on Saturday, 23 November 2019.

Returning with magical displays across Sloane Square, Sloane Street, Duke of York Square and Pavilion Road – and for the first time, new lights on the King’s Road celebrating its regal heritage.

The new displays will see decorative lights inspired by the crown of King Charles II, who the Road was originally built for as a private route to travel between palaces. He famously restored Christmas to the nation following Oliver Cromwell’s ban on festivities for over a decade.

From 2pm on 23 November, enjoy an unmissable array of entertainment across the neighbourhood, including carol singers and performers – perfect for the entire family. At 5pm, Father Christmas and his ‘special helper’, will turn on the Christmas Lights from the stage on Sloane Square, lighting up Duke of York Square, Pavilion Road, Sloane Street and the King’s Road marking the start of the Christmas season.

Check back soon for further information on the Christmas Shopping Event taking place on Saturday, 7 December. In the meantime, expect activities and offers across the area, wreath-making classes, chestnut roasting and plenty of festive music!

Chelsea’s Christmas Grotto

2019 is set to be the most magical Christmas yet, as London’s most interactive Grotto arrives in Chelsea, opening on the picturesque Pavilion Road this November!

The Chelsea Christmas Grotto will offer an hour-long winter wonderland experience like no other, in collaboration with famed children’s entertainers, Sharky & George, where your little one will be transported to the North Pole to meet Father Christmas and his elves. Children will enjoy 30 minutes of classic Sharky & George games before entering Father Christmas’ workshop. Father Christmas will be decked in luxurious red velvet and settled in front of the fire to read a festive story before each child’s one-on-one. The little ones will be dazzled with his knowledge of their naughty and nice antics over the year before giving them a traditional gift from under the tree. Festive crafts will then be on offer, giving children the opportunity to try their hand at gingerbread biscuit or bauble decorating.

Opening as Chelsea lights up for Christmas on 23 November, this truly magical experience will run until 23 December – spaces are likely to fill up fast, so book your spot early to avoid disappointment. Unlike traditional Christmas grottos, this event will be packed full of mischief and mayhem and is also available for exclusive hire sessions, so grab a group of friends and get in touch to book.

For the under-twos, the grotto will also offer a ‘My First Grotto’ session, and exclusive pre-school sessions for those four and under.

With each ticket sale comes the optional donation of £1 which will go towards the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation, an independent charity dedicated to bringing together people across the Borough to overcome hardship and exclusion.

Tickets are £27.50 – book yours here. The grotto will be at 241a Pavilion Road (in the sunken courtyard).

Ugly Butterfly Adam Handling King's Road

Ugly Butterfly to open on the King’s Road

The latest arrival on the King’s Road will enable you to indulge and do your bit for the planet at the same time. This November, Adam Handling will open Ugly Butterfly; a sustainable casual restaurant and sustainability conversation hub at 55 King’s Road.

Making zero-waste luxurious, Ugly Butterfly will make chicken feet and banana peel glamorous as the dishes are created from ingredients usually thrown out. The collaboration between award-winning chef Adam Handling, Cadogan, Quintessentially Foundation and The Felix Project will open on 13 November.

Open for walk-in diners from lunch until late evenings from Wednesday to Sunday, enjoy a delicious menu of snacks and small plates alongside a Champagne list (by the glass) from the region’s top wine makers. All dishes will be made from the parts of ingredients that are usually discarded, most of which coming from Adam Handling Chelsea, with an emphasis on the four most wasted foods; bread, milk, eggs and bananas. Adam has created some daring dishes which he hopes will inspire you to think more carefully before you throw away your leftovers; deboned crispy fried chicken feet with caviar; Adam Handling’s iconic cheese doughnuts made with leftovers from the cheeseboard; banana bread and chicken butter; lobster shell soup; broccoli stalk Ceasar salad, retired dairy cow tartare and crispy potato peelings and reformed doughnuts (made from leftover bread) and overripe fruit jam.

As well as a great place to eat and drink, it is set to become a hub for business and community sustainability hub with pioneers in sustainable food and drink, restaurants, fashion, technology, and art and craft, holding free conversations and experiences for drop-in diners twice a week on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 7pm.
