The Chelsea Society is hosting a commemorative exhibition at Duke of York Square to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I. The exhibition, entitled “Chelsea in the Great War” is open daily from 10am to 6pm between 2nd and 15th June. It is being supported by Kingdom’s Duke of York team, who are charged with security cover for the exhibition, and who provide manned guarding security services to Duke of York Square. The exhibition is free and all are welcome.
The First World War started in Europe on 28th July 1914, although the event that sparked it, the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, happened a month before on 28th June. Britain entered the war on 4th August 1914. Events are being held throughout the year across the country to mark the 100 year anniversary.
The Chelsea Society was founded in 1927 by local historian Reginald Blunt with the aim of protecting the interests of all who live and work in Chelsea and to preserve and enhance the unique character of the area.
