We run seasonal events programmes exclusively for Friends of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and members of the Governor’s Circle. Events take place both at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and at other sites of historic or military significance.

The Autumn/Winter 2019/20 programme features a number of exciting exclusive opportunities, including a tour of the Royal Air Force Museum, a private evening tour of the Tower of London and Ceremony of the Keys and the chance to learn more about John Cairncross, the Bletchley code breaker and Soviet double agent. Please take the time to browse the events programme below for further information and booking details.

As Hallowe’en approaches, immerse yourself in our theatrical twilight tour of the Royal Hospital’s 327-year-old site and meet some of the haunting historic characters who people our past.
