The Chelsea Pensioners will be travelling across the world again this year to support Remembrance events and to commemorate the centenary of the First World War Armistice. The Pensioners attend a variety of events including marching at the Cenotaph and attending the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. For a look at the some of the places the Pensioners will visit during the Remembrance commemorations, click on the Remembrance map option below.

At one of the busiest times of the year for the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the Chelsea Pensioners also volunteer to help raise funds for the Royal British Legion, by selling poppies, in remembrance of their fallen comrades.

Although Chelsea Pensioners Rick Graham and Ernie Boyden are separated by a generation, they bond over the hobby they share. Both are keen painters and enjoy working together in the Royal Hospital’s art room.

Tom Jones - Live at Chelsea
Live at Chelsea, Magnificent Music and a Magical Atmosphere

For the last few nights, the tranquil setting of the Royal Hospital has come alive as three main acts and their supporting artists took to the stage for Live at Chelsea. The South Grounds had a festival vibe with stalls selling food and drink and guests picnicking before making their way to the auditorium.
