The UK's current best-selling author invites Chelsea Pensioners and their grandchildren to the launch of his latest book, The Ice Monster, which includes a very special scene with a Chelsea Pensioner at the Royal Hospital. 

The Christmas Season in Sloane Square kicked off on Saturday 17th November with a festive family event, marked by the Chelsea Pensioners choir, before the Christmas lights were switched on.

The Chelsea Pensioners enjoyed a musical performance at the Royal Hospital Chelsea today as The Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Gibraltar Regiment performed a mini concert in Figure Court.

Friends of the Royal Hospital Chelsea were joined by members of the Anglo-Portuguese Society for a fascinating lecture on Catherine of Braganza, the Portuguese princess who became wife of King Charles II and Queen of England.

Last week the Royal Hospital held a Staff Nurse Conference and was privileged to host Professor Martin Green OBE as the guest speaker for the event.

Former Children’s Laureate, Sir Michael Morpurgo and one of the nation’s best loved illustrators, Michael Foreman, visit the Royal Hospital Chelsea to speak to children from local schools and to the Friends of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Join us on Wednesday 10th October, for a concert dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. 

On the 1st of September the Chelsea Pensioners, in partnership with The Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association for Greater London, proudly led a military Parade down the King’s Road to commemorate Londoners who contributed to the war effort in World War One.

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