RHS Chelsea has a reputation for outstanding entertaining, with quality food and drink options to enjoy. A key addition to 2023’s Show will be acclaimed chef Skye Gyngell who is noted for her innovative cooking with a seasonal focus. Spring Garden at Chelsea is part of the new partnership with Eventist Group with their different brands running other catering areas of the show.

Spring Garden at Chelsea

Skye Gyngell
Spring Garden at Chelsea is discreetly situated amidst dappled woodland within the historic grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Skye Gyngell is Chef Patron of the stylish, high-end dining experience for intimate and exclusive groups and private clients. Noted for her elegant cooking, Skye is one of the country’s foremost chefs and food writers. She currently runs Spring, her own restaurant within Somerset House, and is culinary director of the acclaimed Heckfield Place. She trained in Sydney and Paris before settling in London where she took the helm at Petersham Nurseries and honed her signature seasonal, ingredient-led style of cooking by reflecting their local harvest.

“An ambience that reflects luxury, while also being conscious to its impact on the planet”

Skye says: “Being associated with an event and experience that combines seasonality and horticulture with sustainability and innovation ticks so many boxes for me. Our planning is well under way to create an occasion that showcases the abundant late May harvest in an ambience that reflects luxury while also being conscious of its impact on the planet.”
