We arrive in the afternoon, with time to browse the many stalls and buy refreshments.
Tickets include general entry to afternoon events and reserved seats for the evening pageant. The Pageant celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria.
The 90-minute show will bring together memorable events and aspects from the Victorian era. This will include everything from Elgar, the music hall and Gilbert & Sullivan to author Charles Dickens, rail travel and the Industrial Revolution.
A cast of artists, dancers and performers, together with 500 participants, more than 400 horses and 30 carriages will re-create 19th century Great Britain and the reign of Queen Victoria in a theatrical performance in the shadow of the floodlit Windsor Castle. Alongside The Household Cavalry and The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will be the Czikos from Hungary, the acrobatic and daring Land of Fire Display from Azerbaijan, Pipes & Drums, dancers from the music halls, performers from Gilbert & Sullivan operas.
