With the COVID-19 virus continuing to spread around the country and, in particular, in London, we have taken the necessary steps to safeguard the Chelsea Pensioners and staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. As such all events at the Royal Hospital have been cancelled until the end of April. Further communications will be posted as the situation requires.

The Royal Hospital Chelsea hosts many events each year. From the world famous Chelsea Flower Show, which has been held on site annually since 1913, to the Live at Chelsea music concerts which take place each June.

In addition, Friends of the Royal Chelsea Hospital also enjoy a number of exclusive events each year, including an invite to the Governor's Review, a prestigious dress rehersal event for the Founder's Day celebration.
