Centenary Reconciliation Concert - Cadogan Hall

3rd October 2018

Cadogan Hall
Cultural Solidarity Media present a Centenary Reconciliation Concert on Wednesday 10th October, 7pm at Cadogan Hall to mark the end of the First World War featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and international soloists. 

From the echoes of the first shot in Sarajevo up to the work inspired by the Artic Convoys and reflections of Auschwitz, the programme reflects the horrors of conflict, heroism and resignation with the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

It features works by Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich through to Vaughan Williams and George Lloyd, who both had a first-hand experience of military service in the war, recalling the historical cataclysms of the 20th century out of which we grew to build the world of today. 

£3 from every ticket sold will be donated to our Scarlets Appeal

Brompton Cemetery Seed Sowing
Sowing wildflowers in memory of past Chelsea Pensioners

On 6 May, Chelsea Pensioners and members of the Royal Hospital’s grounds team joined representatives from the Royal Parks, the Royal Parks Guild and the Friends of Brompton Cemetery to sow a patch of wildflower seeds in Brompton Cemetery as part of the Battlefields and Butterflies initiative.

Chelsea Pensioner Centenarians
100 years old and still going strong

Recent research backs up the anecdote that Chelsea Pensioners not only live considerably longer than their peers outside (by over five years, on average), but that their lifetimes once they come to the Royal Hospital are extending, year on year. This strongly suggests that the care and community here contribute to greater longevity – as well as improving quality of life.
