First World War Commemoration: The Great War Centenary Parade with HRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent at Royal Hospital Road, Chelsea

Royal Hospital Chelsea marked this occasion with a rather spectacular ‘The Great War Centenary Parade’ where 40 Edwardian cars were driven by their owners and accompanied by Chelsea Pensioners, whose predecessors had fought in the War, from the Hospital to the Imperial War Museum. The event was organised by Nicholas Pellett whose grandfather was killed in the first World War and was held in the presence of HRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

The Cloud arrives at the Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Gardens

The Serpentine Gallery has recently unveiled its exciting new pavilion designed by award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto. Aged 41, he is the youngest artist to have contributed an outdoor contemporary design to the gallery. The sculpture, covering 350 metres of lawn and constructed of semi-transparent, latticed steel poles is described as cloud-like. Its intricate shape blends magically into the landscape beside the Serpentine creating an illusion of fragility, despite being sturdy enough to climb for those unafraid of heights. It is an intriguing space with a café inside, encouraging visitors to enter and engage with the art-piece until October 30th 2013.
