Between Saturday 14 – Friday 27 May a number of sites across the city centre will become the canvas for some incredible murals, created by a line-up of internationally-renowned street artists alongside some of Chelmsford’s very own talented local artists.
Many of the artists are currently engaging with a number of different groups across Chelmsford’s community, which will inspire their designs to help celebrate Chelmsford’s narrative and tell our city’s story.
Most importantly the project will bring a new lease of life to previously ‘blank’ space whilst creating a trail of Street Art that will remain for all to enjoy.

Are you ready to experience plentiful dishes, bold flavours and exotic ingredients? Well, we have you covered. Giggling Squid officially opened their doors at Bond Street Chelmsford on 15th November, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!
Giggling Squid is all about food with personality, cooked with expertise and shared with Thai generosity. It started in 2002 from a determination to do things differently. Back then, what was missing from the food scene was that true Thai feel – energetic, informal, adventurous, and truly welcoming. Giggling Squid believe food is to be celebrated and that you don’t have to dress up to enjoy it. Relaxed, no standing on ceremony – it’s about having a good time over something tasty.
Giggling Squid now have a few more restaurants under their belt but the important aspects haven’t changed since they started. They’re still as hungry as ever to give their guests a truly memorable experience, leaving full and happy. It’s all the incredible people, from skilled chefs to welcoming front of house staff, and their shared generosity of spirit that lies behind every guest experience.
Join us at Bond Street Chelmsford on the 13th November, 2021 for the grand opening of Cookies and Cones.

After opening their doors in Leigh-on-Sea, they have since established several other stores and now employ over forty people within the local communities.
From freshly baked doughnuts and waffles, to personalised cookies and shakes, there’s something to suit every dessert guru at Cookies and Cones! All of their products are made in-house using unique recipes & only the finest ingredients!
