Live at Chelsea returns to the Royal Hospital

7th March 2017

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is very pleased to be hosting the Live at Chelsea summer concert series for the third year running.

Set within the grounds of the 325 year old Sir Christopher Wren designed Royal Hospital, the Chelsea Pensioners will once again be welcoming the public to four nights of musical entertainment in June. This will include the return of the Chelsea Fireworks Prom featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The four day series will be kicked-off by Scottish indie pop band Belle & Sebastian (Thursday 15th June) and Italian pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi will be performing for the final two nights. It is the third time the home of the Chelsea Pensioners has hosted this summer concert series, with past headliners including Wet Wet Wet, Simply Red and Damien Rice.

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.
