Celebrating one of Britain’s most renowned traditions, Guy Fawkes Night, guests and their children were invited to enjoy an evening of family-oriented activities. Face painting and theatre performed by renowned children’s entertainers, Sharky & George, were enjoyed alongside an array of autumnal canapés. Sumptuous mulled wine, hot chocolates, and canapés preceded the tantalising desserts, including mixed sweets and toffee apples.

Hosted in the restaurant’s beautiful orangery and gardens, the party was set amongst a back drop of autumnal flowers, twinkling fairy lights, candles, cosy rugs and a roaring fire pit. The culmination of the evening’s celebrations included dancers, fire eaters, and fireworks display, making Bonfire Night at The Ivy Chelsea garden a sparkling success.

The Ivy Chelsea Garden remains a favourite for local residents and is well and truly on the map for those travelling from further afield. The Ivy Chelsea Garden marries approachable sophistication and familiar luxury, with an underlying feeling of glamour and theatre.
