Join the Chelsea Pensioners and military representatives from London for a unique Parade down the King’s Road followed by an action packed event for the entire community!
The Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Greater London have teamed up with the Chelsea Pensioners to remember the actions of the London regiments who served so valiantly in WW1. To commemorate those who contributed to the war effort in our community, a WWI themed youth and community event will be taking place following the Parade at the Royal Hospital’s Burton Court.
The Parade will begin at 10.35am, which will see the Chelsea Pensioners exercising their Freedom of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea along with representatives of London’s Maritime Reserves; The Royal Yeomanry; The London Regiment; 600 Squadron RAuxAF and the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. Don’t miss this opportunity to see so many of London’s Armed Forces personnel march together. Come and join your support by lining the streets of the Parade and help remember these brave and unforgettable heroes.
Burton Court will be open from 11am where there will be plenty of activities for all the family such as Arts & Crafts, military arena displays, interactive installations, refreshments, sing-alongs, military vehicles – and more!
10 Youth Organisations in Uniform (YOU London) will be present, along with organisations such as the Royal British Legion, Never Such Innocence, STOLL and the National Army Museum. Join to learn, commemorate and celebrate the people who contributed so valiantly to the war effort 100 years.
