The Prince’s Foundation has established a public exhibition space at The Garrison Chapel, Chelsea Barracks, to showcase the work of the charity, its students and graduates.
The Prince's Foundation will occupy the Grade II-listed Garrison Chapel to publicly exhibit elements of its work, with a particular emphasis on traditional arts and heritage craft skills plus a number of special exhibitions and events.
We will also use the space to encourage collaborative working and host education workshops for the public. We will host a range of events, classes and functions that are widely accessible for all to encourage connectivity in the community - ensuring that the Chapel continues to play a pivotal role in the neighbourhood and beyond.
Simon Sadinsky, Executive Director of The Prince’s Foundation, said: “An opportunity arose for The Prince’s Foundation to take up residence in The Garrison Chapel and thereby establish a presence in West London that will serve primarily as a public-facing showcase of elements of the charity’s work. Everyone at The Prince’s Foundation is keenly anticipating the opportunities that will arise as a result of establishing our presence at The Garrison Chapel.”
To celebrate The Prince’s Foundation’s presence at The Garrison Chapel, a replica cast of a bronze sculpture of HRH The Prince of Wales, originally created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of another of his charities The Prince’s Trust, has been donated for permanent display by Sir Jack and Lady Petchey. While this bust will be a permanent fixture at the Chapel, it will temporarily sit alongside two other busts of The Royal Family, one of HM The Queen originally sculpted for the Scouts Association in 2007 and another of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh to celebrate 50 years of his London Youth patronage. All three were created by celebrated sculptor Lady Petchey. This will mark the first time all three busts have been publicly exhibited together.
The first exhibition in the Garrison Chapel was the School of Traditional Arts' Annual Degree Show. More information can be found here.
"The Highgrove Florilegium: Watercolours Depicting Plants Grown in The Garden at Highgrove” opened on Thursday 5th August and runs until September 26th. More information can be found here
Please note the Garrison Chapel will be closed from 2pm – 4pm on Friday 17th September and all day on Thursday 23rd September. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
