About the event
On Saturday 2nd May Royal Warrant Holder, Partridges of Sloane Square, are hosting the second annual World Chelsea Bun Awards to celebrate World Chelsea Bun Day. Due to the Coronavirus, this year’s World Chelsea Bun Awards are moving online and it’s FREE to enter.
Judges include Michelin Star Chef Phil Howard, Owner of Elystan Street in Chelsea; a Chelsea Pensioner; Hélèna Frost, the Chief Executive of The Children’s Surgery Foundation and John Shepherd, owner of Partridges who has recently become ’Icon of the Speciality Fine Food & Drink Industry’. The judging will take place on Saturday 2nd May at 3pm. It is free to enter but entrants are requested to make a donation to The Children’s Surgery Foundation to help support children undergoing surgery at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.
John Shepherd, Owner and Managing Directory of Partridges says... “The first Chelsea Bun was created around 1700 by Richard Hand close to Partridges store in Duke of York Square, Chelsea. Richard, known as Captain Bun, ran The Old Chelsea Bun House which was famous for its Chelsea Buns and counted King George II, King George III and their families amongst its customers. We are delighted to hold the World Chelsea Bun Awards for the second year running and hope they will revive the baking of Chelsea Buns in the area and help raise funds and for The Children’s Surgery Foundation Charity.”
