We host a series of events throughout the year exclusively for Friends of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and members of the Governor’s Circle. Our events are not open to the general public, but we do encourage our members to bring guests.

Our bespoke bi-annual programme includes lectures, seasonal on-site events, visits to historic houses and military sites, and more.

Our current Friends’ events programme has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to resume these events in the future. Please contact the Friends Membership team for more information: friends@chelsea-pensioners.org.uk

Through a range of workshops, projects and productions they give participants the opportunity to discover new interests, recover from difficult experiences, transition into civilian life and even find new careers.
