The Royal Hospital Chelsea, London
16 July, 2014[/color-box]
Following a successful visit in 2013, West End Kids returns to the Royal Hospital Chelsea to entertain the Chelsea Pensioners. The troupe will perform an evening concert which will include a selection of songs from West End and Broadway musicals, including Swing!, Disney, Titanic, Closer Than Ever and City of Angels.
The Royal Hospital was built by King Charles II who was determined that his soldiers would have a fitting home in their retirement. He commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to create the Royal Hospital Chelsea, which was completed in 1692. Over the past 320 years the Royal Hospital has been home to over 25,000 Chelsea Pensioners, who in their distinctive scarlet uniforms, have become icons in London and around the world. Today the Royal Hospital is home to veterans who served in Korea, the Falklands, Cyprus, Ireland and World War II.
