A major new exhibition “From the World War One Battlefields.& into the Peace”
Friday 29 March – Sunday 31 March 2019 open 10.00 – 16.00 at Wren House, Royal Hospital Chelsea, Royal Hospital Road SW3 4SR. (Enter by the Chelsea Gate located adjacent to the National Army Museum).
This free exhibition – presented by The Royal Parks Guild Guild in partnership with The Royal Parks, the Royal Hospital Chelsea and the 10th Essex Living History Group – traces events that took place in the Royal Parks and the Royal Hospital Chelsea during World War 1 and its immediate aftermath; describing, through images, living history and commemoration, the role that Royal Parks and the Royal Hospital played during and after the First World War.
During the exhibition it is proposed to have “thirty minute” talks held in the visitor centre at 2pm on each day. Guest speakers, from The Postal Museum, Historic Royal Palaces and the London Parks and Gardens Trust, will present talks on subjects such as “The Home Depot, The Regent’s Park”, a sorting office where all of the post to and from the western front was processed; the making of the emotional Battlefields to Butterflies exhibit at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show in 2018 and; “The Shrine Movement” that inspired an iconic shrine to be erected in Hyde Park in 1918.
