THE QUEENS 90TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION @ WINDSOR

Sunday 15th/Monday 16th May 2016


Sunday  

Morning depature for Windsor for Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday Party.
 
In the afternoon we will be able to watch the Horse Show taking place before we will go to our hotel, the Marriott at Slough for an evening meal and change before returning to the evening show  which will be a celebration of The Queen’s life, her love of horses, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs and her deep involvement with the Navy, Army and ­­­­Air Force.

Over 90 minutes, 900 horses and more than 1,500 participants from around the United Kingdom and the World will create a joyful event for The Queen. The 90-year journey will take us from the excitement of the birth, through to World War Two, her marriage, the coronation and a reign of more than 60 years. The Celebration will use horses, actors, bands and dancers to tell the story.
 
As well as a theatrical kaleidoscope of international acts and British icons already confirmed, including The Oman Royal Cavalry, Chilean Huasos, New Zealand Army Band, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Azerbaijan Cossack Riders, State Carriages from The Royal Mews, South Australian Police Band, The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, The Fijian Army Dancers and Band, 100 Military and Commonwealth Pipers and The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, there will also be references to The Queen’s animals including her horses and ponies, her dogs and even Her Majesty’s racing pigeons.

The celebration will be created by the team that organised the successful Diamond Jubilee Pageant in Windsor in 2012. This time, technology will play an important part in the celebration. The 90-minute experience will be a fusion of the latest video projection, LED effects and theatrical lighting. The finale will be a kaleidoscope of memories and achievements.

It will be a Birthday Party fit for The Queen.
