On the evening of Thursday 6th September the Royal Armouries hosted 250 guests in the Assembly Hall at Church House, at a formal reception for the generous supporters of 100 Days to Peace.
This gala evening of music and reflection featuring Sir Karl Jenkins conducting The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, performed by the Royal Choral Society and the Philharmonia Orchestra, will take place in the presence of HRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 100 Days to Peace marks the centenary of the final days of First World War hostilities, raising funds for veterans facing mental health challenges through three outstanding charities: Combat Stress, Help for Heroes and Heads Together – the Royal Foundation’s campaign and mental health initiative.
