Ceremony of the Christmas Cheeses under COVID restrictions
9th December 2020
The Royal Hospital Chelsea has been celebrating the Ceremony of the Christmas Cheeses ever since the first Chelsea Pensioners arrived back in 1692. It's a tradition that spans over three centuries!
Despite the global pandemic, the Royal Hospital was determined to continue with this time-honoured tradition in 2020. With the support of Dairy UK, the Chelsea Pensioners enjoyed a socially-distanced cheese ceremony earlier this month.
