Past Events

'Return to Waterloo' Fundraiser

15th November 2021

Spitalfields, London

In 2021 we held our annual fundraiser, hosted by Gyles Brandreth, at the beautiful Christ Church in Spitalfields. We had an amazing night, and we hope you did too! Thank you to all our guests for making the evening so incredible, and for their incredible generosity - without you, our work with veterans and serving personnel wouldn't be possible.


NAM 20mm Waterloo Model

20th - 23rd October 2021

Chelsea, London

In October 2021, Waterloo Uncovered had the pleasure of presenting a never seen before exhibition at the National Army Museum. Waterloo Remodelled featured a brand new, highly accurate diorama of the Battle of Waterloo created by Major General James Cowan and volunteer veteran model painters from around the world. The exhibition was run alongside a series of evening lectures and drinks receptions, a NAM spotlight lecture, and a family fun day featuring reenactors and the music of Waterloo! 


A Street Through Time at the Chelsea History Festival

25th & 26th September 2021

Chelsea, London

This year’s Chelsea History Festival brought the past to life through a series of talks, tours and events, both physical and virtual.

Stansted Unlocked

10th- 11th July 2021

Stoughton, West Sussex

This year Waterloo Uncovered was thrilled to be involved in ‘Stansted Unlocked’ at Stansted House in West Sussex on the 10th and 11th July 2021.  It was a weekend extravaganza combining cricket, history and fun! Visitors were treated to a wealth of historic interest and activities with displays that revealed the colourful history of the Estate and the Ponsonby family including the sword that General Sir William Ponsonby used at the Battle of Waterloo.  Outside in the Park, the Waterloo theme continued with Reenactors from the Napoleonic period showing off their Cavalry and Musketry skills and demonstrating what it was like to live in a military camp on the eve of the battle. We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed meeting everyone there enjoying the Waterloo themed fun!
