Last Thursday evening saw Over-Seas House at full capacity for the highly anticipated opening to Illustrated Guide to London, our blockbuster Summer exhibition. With 250+ guests it was a truly remarkable occasion enjoyed by all, including the exhibiting artists, friends and family and even a cameo from some of London's local celebrities.

The ROSL Foundation was founded during the Golden Jubilee of the Royal Over-Seas League, with the purpose of supporting our aims. Over the last few decades we have promoted and supported hundreds of young musicians and artists. The ROSL Foundation more recently has looked to support the heritage of ROSL and upkeep of our unique Grade I listed properties in which these important and uplifting activities take place, including the Public Affairs series now into its third year. Renovating, preserving and modernising our home at Overseas House, Park Place, St. James’s is critical to the work we do.
