Live at Chelsea 2018 highlights

18th June 2018

The Royal Hospital Chelsea was delighted to welcome back the ever popular concert series – Live At Chelsea – for another year of top quality music and entertainment, spread over four nights in the beautiful surroundings of Figure Court and the South Grounds. As always, the Chelsea Pensioners enjoyed opening their doors to members of the public, interacting with fans and artists throughout the event. Headline acts this year included The Kaiser Chiefs, Jeff Beck and James Blunt, as well as a musical celebration of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s work as part of his ongoing 70th birthday celebrations.

Chelsea Pensioners Paul and John had a wonderful time backstage across all four nights, with Paul also charged with the nerve-racking task of introducing the main acts each evening.

Remembering the Soane Infirmary bombing

Today marks 80 years following the bombing of the Royal Hospital’s Infirmary during the Second World War. The magnificent Infirmary, which once stood on the current site of the National Army Museum, was hit by a parachute bomb on 16 April 1941 – destroying most of the building and tragically ending the lives of 13 people.
