Kensington + Chelsea Summer Festival
21 June – 31 August 2021
Cadogan is delighted to be supporting Kensington + Chelsea Festival in its inaugural year – a packed programme of public art and live performance throughout July and August, stretching right across the Royal Borough to celebrate the creativity and culture in our community.
Beginning with Chelsea Art Week (KCAW) in June and culminating with the Notting Hill Carnival at the end of August, the Festival aims to inspire positivity as we emerge from lockdown.
The summer season of arts experiences in venues and unusual spaces puts culture at the heart of pandemic recovery – ballet and street art, broken beats and orchestras, circus arts and cabaret, spoken word and street food will all feature in both well-known and unexpected places.
Don’t miss experimental artist Lauren Baker’s public art trail ‘Light Messages for Your Soul’ (main picture, above), a series of neon installations inspired by iconic locals such as Vivienne Westwood, Oscar Wilde and The Beatles.
During weekends throughout the summer, pop-up performance hubs at Duke of York Square, King’s Road and Pavilion Road will welcome live performances – from musicians, poets, singers and record-breaking Bubbleologists to a hula-hooping extraordinaire in a programme that will surprise and delight locals and visitors alike.
