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 further notice. 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.

Remembering the Soane Infirmary bombing

Today marks 80 years following the bombing of the Royal Hospital’s Infirmary during the Second World War. The magnificent Infirmary, which once stood on the current site of the National Army Museum, was hit by a parachute bomb on 16 April 1941 – destroying most of the building and tragically ending the lives of 13 people.
