    Royal Windsor Horse Show Pageant

    10th May 2019

    The Society has again gained access to the Windsor Pageant through the good graces of our member Vivien Matthews. This promises to be an evening filled with equestrian delights and is a premier event in the society social calendar. This event is open to all members but new Australian members may be particularly interested in experiencing this rather jolly and fascinating aspect of British culture.

    The 90 minute Pageant begins at 8.45pm.  In addition, we are organising light supper and glass of wine at 7pm in the Windsor Enclosure before the Pageant for all those attending. 

    Please join fellow Society members and guests as we enjoy a day of pageantry, culture and good old-fashioned fun!

    We have secured a limited ticket allocation of tickets for members and guests so please do book your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. 

    2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria and to celebrate this significant occasion, The Pageant will be staged by the BAFTA award-winning team in the evening.

    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 and a Balmoral Dressage Quadrille.
