We were delighted to welcome footballing legend David Beckham to the Royal Hospital for the launch of the annual Poppy Appeal, to remember those who have died fighting for the Nation. 

For the last few nights, the tranquil setting of the Royal Hospital has come alive as three main acts and their supporting artists took to the stage for Live at Chelsea. The South Grounds had a festival vibe with stalls selling food and drink and guests picnicking before making their way to the auditorium.

Colin Thackery stormed to a sensational victory on the Britain's Got Talent grand final and won universal praise for his heart-rending performances. But what encouraged him to apply to perform on the show?

Staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea were delighted to meet James Blunt ahead of his performance for the Live at Chelsea concert series last month.

The Chelsea Pensioners and Royal Hospital staff enjoyed another fantastic year of Live at Chelsea including headline performances by Kaiser Chiefs & James Blunt.

The Chelsea Pensioners were given a sneak preview of British pop band Madness' new album 'Can't Touch Us Now'.

Today, international singer-songwriter Bryan Adams unveiled a berth named in honour of his foundation.
