Chestertons this July, now in its fourth year. In line with Grosvenor Britain & Ireland’s ethos and 20-year vision, we are keen to build flourishing and active communities, give back and encourage charitable involvement wherever we can.

‘For the fourth consecutive year, Chestertons is proud to sponsor The Grosvenor
Film Festival, which brings the magic of film to a historic garden square in the heart of this great city we live and work in. This year the films being shown represent the heritage and excellence of the silver screen spanning 70 years of film from 1942 to the present day. We hope that guests will enjoy this season of cinema.’
– Anshul Raja, Key Clients Director at Chestertons

Each screening will offer delicious themed food from Salt & Dry, who will be bringing their fleet of extraordinary cooking vehicles to Grosvenor Square for the Film Festival.

Ticketholders can expect smoky, tender real Dixie style BBQ, Roman style pizza-al-metro, 12-hour smoked pulled pork, smoked hot wings and Vesuvio pizza topped with salami.

visitors and an opportunity to win Avios points equivalent to two return flights to
Europe. There will also be a free glass of wine or soft drink for every guest.
Tickets (£25 per person) include a deckchair, a set of luxury bluetooth headphones and a free glass of Barefoot wine or soft drink. Plus, of course, the live entertainment and the chance to enjoy such a grand and exclusive setting with other like-minded film fans. With films ranging from the much loved ‘La La Land’ and ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ through to cult classics such as ‘Psycho ’ and ‘Casablanca’, there is something on offer to suit all tastes.
Behind the iconic screenings are The Nomad Cinema, the roaming cinema that gives back. For each ticket sold, 100% of the profits are donated to The Sustainability Institute in South Africa, a charity focused on sustainable development and teaching how to nurture flourishing food systems and social innovation.
