All proceeds to the Chelsea Pensioners at The Royal Hospital Chelsea
The Chelsea Pensioners are the iconic faces of the UK’s veteran community. They reside at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, their 325-year-old home founded by King Charles II in the heart of London.
Some 300 army veterans live at the Royal Hospital today, including those who have served in Korea, the Falkland Islands, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and World War II.
With your help, the Royal Hospital can ensure they are here for the next generation of veterans.
THE SAINT MARTIN SINGERS owe their origin to a few firewatchers at the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields during the Second World War who made music together on the quieter nights. This year they celebrate their 75th anniversary.
The Saint Martin Singers and their conductor, together with two professional readers always give their services free of charge. They perform on average 4 - 6 concerts a year in aid of charitable causes.
The programme will include songs by Elgar, Vaughan Williams, Rossini and Finzi; readings from the book of Genesis and the Miracle plays through to modern day poets; and songs and poems of Remembrance.
